Hospitalist Medicine


Yale faculty pediatricians who specialize in the management of hospitalized children with a wide array of illnesses in a family-centered approach based on communication and compassion. Since our "clinic" is the hospital ward, we are readily available to our patients multiple times each day and for extended periods each time. This allows us to quickly respond to our patients' changing needs, to coordinate the input of any involved specialty consultants, and to provide an important link to community pediatricians. We adhere to the highest standards of care and are constantly updating our practice as new research emerges in the treatment of childhood diseases.
