Services we provide 

Hospitalists ensure the specialized care your child needs is always available. 

We care for children who are inpatients and outpatients. We may evaluate and treat your child if they need a doctor between clinic visits or if your child’s regular clinic is closed. Hospitalists often work nights, weekends, and holidays. 

Your hospitalist team 

Hospitalists include different medical specialists, including pediatricians and doctors who care for children with cancer and blood disorders. Hospitalists have the same training and qualifications as your child’s primary doctors. Hospitalists usually work when your child’s primary health care team does not or when your child has an unexpected visit to the hospital.
