Hospital Medicine - For Referring Physicians

Hospital Medicine - For Referring Physicians

Pediatric Hospital Medicine has hospitalists, a group of children’s doctors who focus on caring for kids who have been admitted to the hospital. Hospitalists work closely with the child’s primary care provider and any specialists helping in the clinical care of the patients. They also help the family understand the child’s treatment, recovery plan, and understand the hospital system.
