What is Seattle Children’s Pediatric Cardiology of Montana?

Seattle Children's Pediatric Cardiology of Montana provides the highest-quality heart care to Montana's children and young adults. Our two clinics are in Great Falls and Bozeman (in collaboration with Bozeman Health). We also offer outreach clinics in Helena and Havre.

Our providers live in Montana and are part of Seattle Children's Heart Center, the most comprehensive pediatric heart care service in the Northwest. This means your child has access to all of Seattle Children's services, from fetal diagnosis to heart surgery to cardiac care for young adults.

We believe that Pediatric Cardiology of Montana and referring community providers are partners in the care of Montana's youth.

  • Part of a large team — As part of Seattle Children's Heart Center, we provide the most comprehensive pediatric heart care service in the Northwest. This means your child has direct and coordinated access to all of Seattle Children's services, including fetal diagnosis and treatment, heart surgery, cardiac catheterization and interventions, electrophysiology testing and procedures, cardiac MRI, heart failure program, heart care for young adults and more.
  • Full spectrum of cardiology care — Our experts provide diagnosis and care for all types of heart problems seen before birth and in babies, children, teens and young adults. We will work closely with you and your child's referring provider to create a treatment plan that meets your child's needs.
  • Experience and depth of care — We have the most experienced pediatric cardiology team in Montana. All our heart doctors (cardiologists) are board certified in pediatrics and trained to meet the specific needs of children and teens.

Scheduling an Appointment With Pediatric Cardiology of Montana

  • If you would like a referral to Pediatric Cardiology of Montana, talk to your child’s primary care provider. Having a referral will make insurance authorization easier for you, and it will make it easier for us to coordinate with your doctor.
  • We will typically call you to schedule your appointment 1 or 2 business days after your primary care provider sends us your referral.
  • If you have not heard from us within 2 business days, call our Great Falls location at 406-771-3223 or our Bozeman location at 406-414-4570 to schedule an appointment for all locations.
    • Important things to do before the appointment
      • Learn about Seattle Children’s facility charges (which apply at our Bozeman location but not Great Falls or Helena), your bill and Seattle Children’s financial counseling services and financial assistance program. For a cost estimate, call Seattle Children’s at 206-987-3333.
      • Call your insurance company for coverage questions. Your plan may have a preferred provider list.
      • If your plan requires a referral from your primary care provider, have them fax it to our Great Falls location at 406-452-5262 or Bozeman location at 406-414-4595.
