Walking Doctors

Pediatric Hospital Medicine providers oversee the general inpatient medical care of children during their stay at the NC Children’s Hospital. This includes admitting, rounding, and discharging patients. Hospitalists work with a child’s primary care provider and other care services to coordinate care throughout the hospital stay. Our Hospitalists are readily available to care for children with evidence-based treatment plans with a focus on continuously improving patient quality and safety.
