Resources for Families

Our goal is to maximize the quality of our patients’ lives and ease the stress on families.

Children’s National Heart Institute provides many family-centered services because we understand that when a child is ill, it affects the entire family. At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care.

Your care providers may offer specific resources, but we also have online resources available to answer your questions and connect you with the information you need.
