An Alliance for Inpatient Pediatric Care
Close to Home

If your child is admitted to Lancaster General Hospital, special doctors called “hospitalists”, who work in the hospital around the clock, will provide high-quality care to your child. A hospitalist is a doctor who spends all of his or her time caring for patients in the hospital setting. Thanks to an alliance with Lancaster General Health, the hospitalists from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provide inpatient pediatric services at Lancaster General Hospital and communicate directly with your child’s doctor.

How pediatric hospitalists serve you and your child

Our doctors care for infants, children and young adults ages 17 and younger who are hospitalized for a wide range of medical conditions. They evaluate pediatric patients in the emergency department and provide consultations if another doctor is caring for your child. If necessary, they coordinate care with specialists or help with transferring extremely ill patients to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

We stay in close communication

We are committed to keeping you and your child’s primary care doctor informed by phone, fax and e-mail to provide the most up-to-date information about your child’s plan of care and progress. If you don’t have a family doctor, we can help you find one for ongoing care.
