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.

“It is extremely hard to put into words what ATS has done for us. We had what we thought to be our completely healthy kids tested a few years ago. Much to our surprise and shock, they found a large hole in Riley’s heart that required surgery to repair. The surgeon told us it was good that the hole was detected because Riley was a walking stroke waiting to happen. We are forever grateful we took advantage of the opportunity and think everyone should do the same because you may never know what is going on inside your child until it’s too late.” – Amy Ebert
ATS HeartCheck offers schools and youth organizations a unique program not available anywhere else in the country. Performing an echocardiogram and EKG on each child in addition to having results provided by well recognized pediatric cardiologists is considered the gold standard in preventative heart screenings for youth. Those were the key elements the ATS HeartCheck was built around, 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 heart screening anywhere!
