As hospitalists, our clinic is the hospital ward. Our highly trained physicians take care of children of all ages who are hospitalized for either general illnesses or complex medical situations. Because we are based in the wards, we are readily available to our pediatric inpatients and their families several times a day, and for extended periods at a time. We can quickly respond to our patients' changing needs, coordinate the efficient input of any involved specialty consultants, and provide an important link to community pediatricians.
We use a family-centered approach to care, based on good communication and compassion, and are constantly updating our practice to remain on the leading edge of the treatment of childhood diseases.
