The ATS HeartCheck uses the most effective analytic tools to understand a heart’s condition. We include blood pressure, electrocardiogram (EKG), and echocardiogram (heart ultrasound), all delivered by specially trained medical professionals certified in congenital and genetic heart conditions who make their living saving kids lives every day. You won’t find a better screening anywhere!
Here are a few reasons why you should give careful consideration to signing your child up for an appointment.
- According to the American Heart Association, at least one-half million youth in the U.S. have some form of cardiac problem – that’s 1 in 100 kids.
- These problems range from minor performance issues to sudden cardiac arrest.
- This testing goes beyond the standard physical to uncover dangerous-hidden heart conditions.
- ATS is the most respected youth heart screening programs in the country.
There are a limited number of appointments available so make your appointment before it’s too late.

Maxwell Thomas Ward was many things to many
people – a son, brother, partner-in-crime, conﬁdant, and friend. Born and raised in Kansas City, his larger-than-life personality was evident from an early age, always drawing people to him wherever he went. Despite suffering from cardiovascular illness throughout his life, Max never let his health problems keep him from living with passion, purpose, and joy.
Max passed away in his sleep on June 10, 2016, due to a ventricular arrhythmia (abnormally rapid heart rhythms), that originated in the lower chambers of his heart. The Maxwell T. Ward Foundation was founded to honor his memory. The Foundation provides ﬁnancial aid to families with children suffering from cardiovascular illness and administers heart screenings to Kansas City youth with the hope of early
detection and prevention.
