Welcome

Our pediatric hospitalists are dedicated to providing the safest and best possible care to patients by serving as physician leaders in the hospital, educators for the pediatric residency training program and College of Medicine students, and researchers in the academic setting.

Patient and Family Care

In addition to providing medical care, a hospitalist’s job is to communicate and coordinate with each patient’s family, primary care provider and other specialists involved in patient care. Hospitalists help maintain continuity of care between hospital and outpatient settings.
