What to expect from the hospitalist

hospitalist 4

Hospitalists are among the first faces kids see when they're transferred to an inpatient or observation unit. During this process, our team confers with the admitting doctor and the patient's pediatrician to gather information and plan for first-rate care.

Hospitalists visit their patients at least once a day — and more often as needed. Our team members usually work several days in a row so we can get to know the kids better.

If you have a question or concern, we're here to help. Even if it's 4 a.m. on Christmas, you'll always find us busy on the unit. To speak with your hospitalist, please ask your child's nurse or any member of the care team.
