Pediatric Inpatient Care

When a child needs hospitalization, it’s reassuring to know there’s world-class pediatric care so close to home.

Our multidisciplinary team, led by our pediatric hospitalists and pediatric critical care physicians, includes pediatric nurses, nutritionists, pharmacists, social workers, care coordinators, chaplains and therapists (speech and swallowing therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy).

Our hospitalists are available 24/7/365 for children’s and families’ medical needs. Not only do they deliver top-notch medical care, they also offer critical support and reassurance to patients and their families at a time fraught with anxiety.

Quality Improvement
Community Children’s is part of a collaborative network for quality improvement, and recently completed a project related to the care of young infants with fevers: Reducing Excessive Variability in the Infant Sepsis Evaluation (REVISE). Along with other member hospitals, we instituted a clinical pathway to improve and standardize care for infants with fever in the emergency department and in the pediatric unit. This involves gathering data that will be important in shaping and evaluating upcoming guidelines for the care of young babies with fever and potentially serious infections.
