Resources for Families

At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care. In addition to any resources your provider may give you, our online resources can also support your ongoing treatment journey.

Transitioning from Our Cardiac Intensive Care Unit to the Heart and Kidney Unit

In the HKU, you'll receive the help you need to prepare to care for your improving child at home. See what happens on a typical day in the HKU and learn about the staff members who comprise your child's care team.
