Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need.


Doctors trained in treating children with heart disease (pediatric cardiologists), surgeons and other specialists work together in the Center for Congenital Heart Disease at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota to care for children with congenital heart diseases.

Children with congenital heart disease are cared for in the Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The hospital includes a cardiovascular unit dedicated to pre- and postsurgical care of children who have congenital heart disease. Nurses trained in treating children and adolescents with congenital heart disease staff the unit.

In the hospital, child-life specialists help you and your child deal with natural fears about illness, medical procedures and hospital care.
