As pediatric hospitalists, we provide general pediatric care for hospitalized children at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital and serve as a liaison between families and their different providers, whether their primary care physician in the community or the pediatric specialists in the hospital.

We recognize hospital admission can be a challenging time for patients and families, and we believe in providing exceptional and evidence-based clinical care and treating all children like our own while supporting families through their stay and beyond. Our care model includes a family-centered approach to inpatient care with outstanding communication and professionalism, as well as advocacy for continuous improvement of the care of hospitalized children through participation in ongoing patient safety and quality improvement initiatives.

Our division is devoted to supporting all trainees and peers and maintains a strong presence in resident and faculty mentorship across the department. This endeavor aligns with ongoing scholarly work and the establishment of educational curriculums and innovative educational programs. Our faculty serve in multiple educational leadership roles at the medical school and in the department. They are integral to educating students, residents and fellows in pediatrics and training the next generation of pediatricians.

We are passionate about our mission and approach our work with purpose, diligence, enthusiasm, respect and compassion. We greatly value diversity, inclusion and health equity, and we are committed to building a dynamic and culturally diverse team that best reflects the patients and families that we serve.

We are proud of the steady growth in size (physicians and nurse practitioners) and in services that has occurred since the establishment of our division. Our latest milestone is the ACGME accreditation of a Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellowship program at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital/Saint Louis University School of Medicine. We strive to continue to innovate and expand care delivery models to best serve our community and patients into the future.
