Hospitalists

The hospitalists at Blank Children's Hospital are board-certified pediatricians, practicing in the hospital setting. If your child is admitted to the hospital for care, your primary care provider may choose to have the hospitalists care for your child. The hospitalists work closely with your primary care provider and specialists in order to provide your child the care he or she needs. The hospitalists will manage the care of your child during hospitalization, and then your child will return to the care of your primary care provider after discharge.
