We wanted to build a hospital that would help us dramatically increase survival rates for heart attack patients. So we did.

McConnell Heart Hospital's efficient six-story floor plan dramatically reduces the time it takes to move heart attack patients from the emergency room to the cardiac catheterization lab for life-saving treatment. In one location, you can receive a complete range of care, such as inpatient and outpatient treatment, cardiac diagnostics, interventional procedures, research clinical trials, surgery and education.

Nationwide Childrens Hospital

The health and safety of our patients, families and staff has always been our top priority. During the COVID-19 pandemic our mission remains the same. With guidance from public health officials and our own medical experts, we are slowly and carefully opening our services more broadly again.

As you return to our facilities, you will notice many changes we've implemented to keep us all safe. First, we ask that you wear your own mask in the parking lot until you get inside the building. There you will be greeted at our masking and screening stations. When you enter the hospital or an outpatient facility, you will be provided with a mask and may be asked some questions about how you are feeling. Here are a few other things you need to know before your next visit:

  • Per state and federal guidelines, all patients and visitors must continue wearing masks within health care facilities . Nationwide Children's will provide a medical mask to every patient and visitor 2 years and older . The mask must be worn throughout your visit.
  • Children who are outpatient (those who are coming for a clinic visit or outpatient procedure) may have two visitors .
  • Children who are being seen at our Urgent Care centers or Emergency Departments may have two visitors .
  • Children who are inpatient (those who are staying in the hospital) may have four visitors .
  • Children may be required to be tested for COVID-19 prior to a test or procedure. Speak to your child's care team with questions. Click here for tips on preparing kids for COVID-19 swabs

It's not unusual for children to have short attention spans or behavior that's out of control. It's how they find out what's allowed. And what's appropriate.

However, for some children, these types of behaviors are more common than occasional. And they don't seem to outgrow them when their age suggests they should. It's as if these children don't seem to have control of themselves. And their ability to concentrate and focus fails to develop the way you would expect.

For children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD,) their problems with attention and hyperactivity are frequent and severe. It's not that they're trying to be “bad,” though their behavior can be seen that way by others. Something is keeping them from staying on track with their peers, both at home and at school.

What is ADHD?

ADHD is a common neurodevelopmental disorder, meaning it begins to reveal itself and cause problems as the brain develops during childhood. It affects about six percent of school-age children. Boys are more likely than girls to be diagnosed with it. And doctors don't fully understand why.

ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Young people with ADHD have a tendency to act without thinking. They tend to have a high energy level, and have trouble focusing on the task before them, particularly if the task is not naturally interesting, fun, or engaging for them such as schoolwork or household chores . They usually understand what's expected of them. But because it's hard for them to sit still, pay attention or focus on details, they have trouble following through.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition involving the brain that makes people more susceptible to having recurrent unprovoked seizures. It is one of the most common disorders of the nervous system and affects people of all ages, races and ethnic background. According to the CDC, almost 3 million Americans live with epilepsy and nearly 200,000 people in the U.S. develop this condition annually.

Anything that interrupts the normal connections between nerve cells in the brain can cause a seizure; this includes a high fever, low blood sugar, alcohol or drug withdrawal, or a brain concussion. Under these circumstances, anyone can have one or more seizures. However, when a person has two or more recurrent unprovoked seizures, he or she is considered to have epilepsy. There are many possible causes of epilepsy, including an imbalance of nerve-signaling chemicals called neurotransmitters, tumors, strokes, and brain damage from illness or injury, or some combination of these. In the majority of cases, there may be no detectable cause for epilepsy.

What Is a Seizure?

The brain is the center that controls and regulates all voluntary and involuntary responses in the body. It consists of nerve cells that normally communicate with each other through electrical activity.

A seizure occurs when part(s) of the brain receives a burst of abnormal electrical signals that temporarily interrupts normal electrical brain function.
