Pediatric Hospitalist

When your child requires hospitalization, care will be delivered and coordinated by a pediatric hospitalist, a specialized hospital physician devoted to your child’s care during his or her hospital stay. Care is closely coordinated with your regular pediatrician, from admission to post-discharge treatment plans that ensure appropriate follow-up or long-term care. 

During your child’s stay, the pediatric hospitalist will: 

  • Guide you through admission to the hospital. 
  • Assess and treat your child’s medical condition.
  • Regularly report progress to your child’s pediatrician.
  • Coordinate your child’s care, including all tests such as X-rays, blood tests or other procedures. 
  • Arrange any specialty care, therapy or consultations with other providers.
  • Be available to both you and your family to provide information and answer questions.
  • Transition your child’s care back to his or her pediatrician upon discharge.
