MGHfC Pediatric Hospitalists are physicians whose primary professional focus is the general medical care of hospitalized patients. Our mission, as clinician educators and community partners, is to deliver the highest quality family-centered pediatric inpatient care in a collaborative, comprehensive, and compassionate manner with a strong commitment to education, research, and advocacy.
In addition to caring for general pediatric patients, a primary goal of the hospitalist group is to improve coordination of care for children with chronic conditions or special healthcare needs, including multisystem pathologies. The hospitalist’s goal is to bring a unified thought process to treatment, while working with MGHfC’s talented subspecialists and allied health professionals. Additionally, hospitalists work to improve communication with primary care doctors to help children continue to receive optimal care after they have left the hospital.
Other goals include:
