Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hospitalists coordinate inpatient hospital care of the patient when the child’s community physician is unavailable. Our hospitalists function as a team of diagnosticians, offering years of combined experience in treating children with the most complex general pediatric illnesses and injuries.
Children’s also brings together specialists from every medical and surgical discipline in addition to highly trained nurses, therapists, technicians and other ancillary personnel as needed. Children’s offers the latest technologies and state-of-the-art diagnostic tools designed specifically for children.
For physicians who are unable to follow patients at Children’s, our hospitalists keep the child’s primary care physician informed of the patient’s progress to ensure continuity of care. In every case, the patient is returned to the referring physician for follow-up and care after hospitalization.
