Hospitalist Care

Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who work in hospitals, caring for children in the Pediatric Unit, the Newborn Nursery, the Emergency Department, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. They work with your child's regular pediatrician and other physicians and providers involved in your child's care. When your child leaves the hospital, a pediatric hospitalist will give your pediatrician an overview of your child's hospital stay and instructions for any necessary further care.
