Pediatric Hospital Medicine faculty at IU School of Medicine work with patients at four different IU Health hospitals with an emphasis on the bedside and on family-centered care. Preeminent care is expected and advocacy for the child extends to the family or support group on whom they depend. The multidisciplinary approach of pediatric hospitalists at IU School of Medicine prioritizes collaboration among all the subspecialties and support staff. Communication with referring physicians and hospitals is a high priority, as these physicians contact each primary care physician on discharge regarding their patients and the hospital course. Appropriate consultation with subspecialists and assistance with securing outpatient follow-up as needed is of prime importance to Pediatric Hospitalists.
