Benefits of hospitalists 

The hospitalists are based on-site and provide 24-hour a day, seven days a week care to the hospitalized children. They work in collaboration with the patient, the family, the child’s pediatrician and specialty physicians to provide the best care possible. 

When the patient leaves the hospital, the pediatric hospitalist will give primary care physician an overview of the child’s hospital stay and detailed instructions for any necessary further care. 

Our pediatric hospitalists care for children with a wide variety of illnesses and medical needs who require hospital care. Some common illnesses include, asthma, serious infections, seizure disorder, diabetes, immune problems and medically complex patients. 

Our hospitalists embrace diversity of patients, staff and community and provide an inclusive and exceptional care to all patients regardless of their background. They work towards ensuring equitable health access and eliminating health disparities.
