Hospital-Based Medicine

Lurie Children's hospitalists are board-eligible/board-certified pediatricians who specialize in caring for hospitalized infants, children, and adolescents. Our hospitalists have experience in caring for children with a wide variety of pediatric conditions, from the most common to the most complex. Hospitalists work closely with families, nurses, social workers, and other specialists to ensure your child receives high-quality care.

At the Lurie Children's main campus in downtown Chicago, hospitalists care for children in a variety of settings. Children throughout the city and suburbs can also receive the same high-quality care from a Lurie Children's hospitalist at our partner hospitals.

Experience

The hospitalist team is dedicated to evaluating and treating pediatric patients from infancy through adolescence. Our team has experience and knowledge about a wide variety of illnesses and conditions affecting children and adolescents.

Approach

When your child is admitted to a hospitalist service at Lurie Children's or one of our partner hospitals, you can expect that they will be evaluated by a Lurie Children's pediatric hospitalist. Our team will perform a comprehensive history and examination, develop a treatment plan, and coordinate your child's care with any other specialists or providers that may be necessary.

Conditions

Our pediatric hospitalists treat hospitalized children for a wide variety of conditions and diseases that can require hospitalization.

Contact Us

Hospitalists are available 24/7 at Lurie Children's and at nearly all of our partner hospitals. If you are a healthcare professional and need to contact a Lurie Children's hospitalist regarding the transfer of one of your patients, please call the Lurie Children's Transport Team at 1.800.540.4131.
