  • Pediatric Hospitalists Provide Specialized Care.

    To make sure your newborn gets the very best care, we have a specialized team of Pediatric Hospitalists providing newborn care for your baby’s entire stay. Pediatric Hospitalists are Board Certified Pediatricians who specialize in the care of hospitalized babies and children. Should your baby need the services of specialty pediatricians (Cardiologist, Neurologist, or Neonatologist), the Pediatric Hospitalist will work closely with those specialists to ensure your baby receives the needed specialty care.


    Upon admission to the hospital, before you deliver your baby, you will be asked to choose a private doctor to care for your baby when he or she goes home. The Pediatric Hospitalist will ensure a smooth transition into your doctor’s private practice. The hospital records will be sent to the office so your private doctor has all the details of your baby’s hospital stay.

    Benefits of Pediatric Hospitalists:

    • They are readily available to the patient
    • They understand the hospital’s procedures and staff allowing them to quickly obtain test results, call in other specialists, and seamlessly coordinate care.
    • They have special skills for managing serious illnesses.
