What is a Children's Hospitalist?

Children’s hospitalists are pediatricians who provide inpatient medical care for hospitalized infants, children, and teens. At St. Luke's Children's, our hospitalists work with a child's primary physician and pediatric subspecialists to coordinate referral, admission, and care in a seamless manner.

Because St. Luke’s Children's Hospital is their primary practice site, hospitalists are more familiar with the hospital than most pediatricians. They are also able to spend more time with a patient, and are in constant contact with the child's regular pediatrician.
