Upper Chesapeake Health is proud to staff a highly qualified and specially trained group of pediatric hospitalists at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center 24 hours a day/7 days a week. A pediatric hospitalist is a board-certified physician specializing in the care of children. Pediatric hospitalists offer many advantages for children admitted to the hospital including the amount of experience they have with caring for hospitalized children on a daily basis and familiarity with the workings of the staff and the hospital. The 24/7 coverage allows them to meet more conveniently with family members, follow-up on tests, answer nurses' questions, and deal with any issue that may arise. They also communicate with the child’s pediatrician to consult on the child’s progress.
