When your child is sick…you want the best care possible and at Calvert Memorial Hospital you get it. Our pediatric hospitalists provide round-the-clock coverage for sick children who are admitted. They are also immediately available for emergency deliveries and cesarean sections.
The hospitalists are pediatricians who specialize in the care of children who are admitted to the hospital. They are fully trained in pediatrics with an emphasis on the care of acutely ill children.
They are on hand, seven days a week and are available anywhere in the hospital when a child need care.Their role is to work with families, nursing staff and other doctors and pediatricians to coordinate the care of each child.
Our hospitalists work closely with the referring physicians to make sure they are kept up to date.Once a child is discharged and they go home, care is taken over by his or her regular pediatrician or family medicine doctor.
This specialized care is enhanced by the hospital’s relationship with Dr. Deborah Hoy of the Georgetown Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, who oversees the program. In her role as medical director, she assures that the pediatric care provided at CMH is based on the latest-evidenced based medicine.
