About Our Pediatric Cardiology Program

The Pediatric Cardiology Program at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital is a critical resource for children throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties. With a team of board-certified pediatric cardiologists, services are tailored to the needs of children from newborns to young adults.  

There are two types of heart disease in children, congenital and acquired. Congenital heart disease (also known as a congenital heart defect or CHD) is present at birth. About 36,000 children are born with a heart defect each year.  It is the most common congenital condition, and affects about 9 of every 1,000 infants born each year. Today, there are about 800,000 children living with CHD in the United States. Acquired heart disease develops during childhood, and includes conditions such as Kawasaki disease, rheumatic fever and infective endocarditis.
