Pediatric Hospital Medicine

The Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine provides comprehensive care for children from newborns to young adults up to age 20 requiring inpatient medical care. The division provides care for a variety of disorders, acute and chronic, with general and subspecialty needs.

Common conditions on the inpatient service include:

  • Acute and chronic respiratory illnesses,
  • Gastrointestinal disorders,
  • Infectious diseases,
  • Rheumatologic and cardiac conditions,
  • Neurologic concerns.

The faculty provides direct care and coordination of care for medically complex patients while they are inpatients. The hospitalists provide medical care alongside the Child Psychiatry Consultation and Liaison service for children and adolescents with psychiatric and behavioral health problems. The division also provides consultative care for patients on surgical and medical subspecialty services.

Our inpatients are cared for in the General Pediatric Inpatient Units in the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital by teams that include Pediatric Hospitalists, residents, medical students, and nurse practitioners. The care is enhanced with the assistance of dedicated pediatric case managers, social workers, pharmacists, child life specialists, and art and music therapists.
