Caring for your child during a hospital stay
If your child is admitted for an overnight stay, he or she might have a pediatric hospitalist leading the team of caregivers. Unlike a pediatrician who takes care of children in a doctor’s office as well as the hospital, pediatric hospitalists care for children only while they are in the hospital. They provide a special level of care that’s not available at many facilities.
Our hospitalists are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date medical care possible. We work closely with other pediatric specialists on your child’s team. And when your child leaves the hospital, we will communicate with your pediatrician, providing information about your child’s stay and recommendations for any further care.
