ChristianaCare Hospitalists

Pediatric Hospitalists

Christiana Hospital is the first hospital in Delaware with pediatric hospitalists on-site 24 hours a day to care for your child.

Pediatric hospitalists are board-certified pediatricians who work only in the hospital. When your child is admitted to our Pediatric Inpatient Unit, pediatric hospitalists oversee medical treatment during the entire stay. This includes examining your child, ordering tests and medication and answering your questions. They also ensure that your child’s hospital care is seamless, from admission until discharge, by staying in close contact with your pediatrician or primary-care physician. This arrangement helps to ensure that your child gets excellent care both in the hospital and in the doctor’s office.

Newborns and children who need immediate medical attention might see pediatric hospitalists who provide consultations in Christiana Hospital’s Emergency Department.

In our maternity center, pediatric hospitalists examine and treat newborns. They fill in when parents have not selected a pediatrician, or when the child’s pediatrician does not practice at our hospital. Hospitalists also are present during high-risk deliveries and help care for newborns immediately after birth.
