Hospital Medicine is a specialty focused on delivering care to pediatric patients
admitted to the hospital. The Section of Hospital Medicine providers work with multidisciplinary
teams to provide optimal care of patients hospitalized for medical conditions ranging
from the common issues like pneumonia or dehydration to complex problems related to
prematurity or genetic disorders. Hospital Medicine providers work with patients and
families in conjunction with other medical and surgical specialists, pharmacists,
social workers, dieticians, and therapists to optimize care of children while they
are hospitalized as well as to plan for successful transition to outpatient care after
the hospitalization is over.
Hospital Medicine providers are also extensively involved in quality improvement projects, hospital leadership, and education of residents and medical students.
