What is a pediatric hospitalist?
Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who care for children while they are admitted to the hospital. At Hendricks Regional Health, our pediatric hospitalists care for children in the Pediatric Unit, Special Care Nursery, and other areas of the hospital to provide specialized treatment for our youngest patients. Pediatric hospitalists work with your regular pediatrician and other physicians and providers involved in your child’s care.
