About CHKD’s Pediatric Hospitalist Division
CHKD pediatric hospitalists specialize in the inpatient, non-intensive medical care of children. They provide comprehensive coverage of the patients from admission through discharge, and communicate routinely with primary care pediatricians to discuss diagnostic and treatment regimens and ensure appropriate follow-up.
Hospitalists emphasize continuity of care during a child's hospital stay. A focus on family-centered care allows parent involvement with transparent decision-making. Our hospitalists work closely with our nursing staff and other colleagues, and they are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Hospitalist Division is involved in academic pursuits that involve projects to examine discharge coordination, electronic communication, meningitis demographics, and the treatment of inpatient asthma. They believe in exploring new ways to better treat hospitalized children and in sharing that knowledge with colleagues nationwide.
To be a service-oriented, cohesive academic hospitalist team, providing patients with quality medical care that is safe, efficient, and addresses the longitudinal needs of patients and families.
To become a preferred provider of quality inpatient general medical services to children and families in the Hampton Roads area and surrounding communities.
