Jamie Price, MD provides care for a wide variety of diseases affecting children 0-18 years of age which require hospitalization. She works closely with subspecialty teams to provide evidence-based, compassionate care to children admitted to St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. Dr. Price has a special interest in developing the use of bedside ultrasound with hospitalized pediatric patients to assist with rapid determination of appropriate diagnostics and treatment plans and in cases of difficult intravenous access. She enjoys working with a multidisciplinary team including specialists, nurses, dietitians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech therapists to create a comprehensive plan for each individual patient.
Over the years, Dr. Price and her hospitalist colleagues have developed and implemented multiple quality improvement projects to ensure the most up-to-date evidence is used at St. Luke’s. Examples include implementation of additional pediatric psychiatric support services to improve clinical outcomes for pediatric behavioral health patients, Pathways to Improving Pediatric Asthma Care (Project PIPA), Improving Pediatric Patient-Centered Care Transitions (Project Impact), Standardization of Fluids in Inpatient Settings (Project SOFI), and an initiative to reduce length-of-stay for infants admitted for neonatal fever.
Dr. Price obtained her bachelor's degree in microbiology with honors, graduating summa cum laude from The Ohio State University. After medical school at the University of Toledo College of Medicine, she completed her pediatric residency at Brenner Children’s Hospital at Wake Forest University where she was named by medical students as the resident who displays the attributes of an exemplary role model and outstanding teacher. Dr. Price recently passed the pediatric hospitalist board certification, a new subspecialty board, making her part of the first class of physicians to achieve this distinction.
