My HeartCheck is the #1 Youth Heart Screening Program in America…Recommended by Pediatricians, Trusted by Moms!
your partner in
My-HeartCheck was designed with the help of the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins, providing the most thorough youth heart screening program available.
My-HeartCheck’s mission is to improve outcomes for children born with heart defects, estimated to be over 40,000 annually (1 in 100). While initial efforts to screening babies at birth have improved over the years, many conditions are still missed and some only develop as kids grow into their teens.
Over 14,000 kids have received a HeartCheck. Don’t let yours be one we miss.
We partner with physicians, schools and other youth organizations to provide our testing from their facilities. Not having multiple offices of our own, spread out around the country, is one of the ways we save you money!

ALL HEARTCHECKS INCLUDE:
ECHOCARDIOGRAM The echocardiogram (Echo or heart ultrasound) is done to properly assess the heart’s structure and function. This includes heart muscle abnormalities, valve function, coronary artery anomalies, and look for potential aortic root disorders. According to the Mayo Clinic, the echo is the “Gold Standard” in evaluating the structure of the heart.
EKG The 12-lead electrocardiogram (EKG) is performed to assess the electrical system that keeps the heart beating. Certain conditions like Wolff-Parkinson-White and Long QT syndromes are common abnormalities that are more readily uncovered by the EKG.
BLOOD PRESSURE High blood pressure in children and adolescents is a growing health problem that is often overlooked. Blood pressure often has no symptoms. The younger a child is, the more likely it is that the high blood pressure is caused by a specific and identifiable medical condition. Older children can develop high blood pressure for the same reasons adults do — excess weight, poor nutrition, and lack of exercise. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.
Each patient also completes a HEALTH & FAMILY HISTORY FORM to accompany all tests.
All exams are reviewed by Board Certified Pediatric Cardiologists, with results returned to the patient’s parent/guardian, as well as sent to their personal physician as requested. If any abnormalities are identified, the participant is instructed in the report, and by phone contact from us, to seek further care from their personal physician.
“As a mother of 4 children and an adult cardiologist, I would highly recommend this screening for all children. I personally tested all of my kids as soon as they became age appropriate and am grateful to know their hearts are healthy.
The My HeartCheck screening is a wonderful opportunity to screen our children for heart rhythm issues, high blood pressure and cardiac congenital structural abnormalities. It is non-invasive and completely painless for the kids. As kids participate in competitive sports and physical activities it is important to rule out many conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac death. This screening enables parents to have that assurance and also can detect conditions that can be treated early and followed closely to prevent serious complications.
The testing process is organized and efficient. The results are timely and accurate. The scheduling process is seamless. “

“I wanted to send a note about my daughter Grace. She had open heart surgery to fix a half dollar size hole in her heart at Children’s Mercy. Every surgeon and cardiologist we talked to said she would have needed a transplant in 4 to 5 years because of the damage being done to her heart by the hole. Your test saved her life and we are forever grateful. We will be advocates of this testing continuing. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know.”
