If your child has an illness or injury requiring hospitalization, he or she may be cared for by a Pediatric Hospitalist.

Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who work primarily in hospitals. They care for children in many hospital areas, including the pediatric ward, labor and delivery, the newborn nursery, the emergency department, the neonatal intensive care unit, and the pediatric intensive care unit.

Pediatric hospitalists work with your regular pediatrician and other physicians and providers involved in your child's care. If there is a significant change in your child's condition, a pediatric hospitalist will update your pediatrician. When your child leaves the hospital, a pediatric hospitalist will give your pediatrician an overview of your child's hospital stay and detailed instructions for any necessary further care.
