PITTSBURGH, PA - November 20, 2013 - As part of an effort to improve access to all levels of pediatric care, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is now offering its world-class pediatric cardiology services closer to home for families in the Uniontown area.
Earlier this year, Children's Community Pediatrics (CCP) – a network of pediatric primary care practices affiliated with Children's, opened CCP – Laurel Pediatrics, in Uniontown.
Now, pediatric cardiologist, Leif Lovig, M.D., of Children's Heart Institute will be available for the evaluation and care of infants, children, and teens with congenital and acquired heart disease and other cardiac conditions. Referrals are necessary and patients may be referred by any pediatrician in the area.
"Patients will now have the opportunity to receive care by the same highly skilled pediatric cardiologists who provide care at our main hospital in Lawrenceville," said Vivek Allada, M.D., interim chief and clinical director, Heart Institute at Children's.
Dr. Lovig's clinical expertise includes areas of outpatient evaluation of infants and children with cardiac symptoms, comprehensive clinical management of children with congenital heart disease, and non-invasive cardiac imaging including transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography.
He focuses on research looking at echocardiographic indices of ventricular function in heart transplant patients and echocardiographic assessment of pulmonary vascular development in patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
By joining CCP in February 2013, Laurel Pediatrics became part of the largest pediatric and adolescent care network in western Pennsylvania. With over 100 board-certified pediatricians in more than 30 pediatric locations across Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Erie, Indiana, Mercer, Washington and Westmoreland counties, CCP provides pediatric care to over 150,000 patients annually.
Appointments with Dr. Lovig at CCP – Laurel Pediatrics must be scheduled in advance by calling the Heart Institute at 412-692-5540.
