Our pediatric specialists are uniquely positioned to collaborate and communicate across practices and specialties and work collaboratively with primary care providers and other specialists to ensure patients receive coordinated care.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine
Pediatric emergency medicine physicians provide care to children in emergency rooms and trauma centers, and work with hospital partners to establish, develop or improve pediatric emergency services based on the unique needs of the community. Our pediatric emergency clinicians collaborate with pediatric intensivists and hospitalists to support continuity of care.
Pediatric Intensive Care
Pediatric intensivists provide care for critically-ill or injured children and adolescents within pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) by providing a wide range of treatment options. These physicians are skilled in meeting the unique needs of children and adolescents, are available 24/7 and staff and manage the unit.
Pediatric Hospitalist Services
Our pediatric hospitalists care for children with a wide range of illnesses that require hospitalization. These physicians work closely with their patients’ primary physicians and provide an overview of care given as well as additional details for follow-up care upon discharge. They can also provide care in other hospital areas, including labor and delivery and the newborn nursery.
