Hospital Medicine

A child's hospital admission is often a complex and stressful experience. Our team of hospitalists is here to help. As experts focused exclusively on the care of hospitalized children and adolescents, we care for thousands of patients and their families each year. We are skilled in the management of common conditions such as asthma and pneumonia, as well as more complex medical problems. Regardless of the reason for hospitalization, it is our goal to provide you with the very best possible care.

We also consider your family an important part of the care team. That’s why our providers involve you in your child’s care every step of the way. Near the end of your hospital stay, we will share instructions for at-home care and plans for following up with your child's primary care provider and other specialty providers if needed. We will also keep your child’s primary care provider updated on what happened during your hospital stay and provide recommendations for treatment or future appointments.
