Hospitalist Program

Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians with expertise in the management and coordination of the complex care of hospitalized infants, children and adolescents. Our pediatric hospitalist service provides care to patients at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and Goryeb Children's Center at Overlook Medical Center. In addition, the pediatric hospitalists provide care for healthy newborns in the nurseries at both hospitals.

Pediatric Hospitalization

Our team of highly trained general pediatricians coordinates the care of any infant, child or adolescent during their hospitalization. From a child’s hospital admission until his or her discharge, the hospitalist team will:

  • Coordinate all medical and surgical consultations with specialists
  • Conduct family-centered and patient-centered rounds daily with nurses, pediatric residents and pharmacists
  • Include the patient (if able) and family in these rounds to ensure communication between the family and all members of the team
  • Maintain close communication with the patient’s primary care physician  

Newborns

Our highly regarded maternity services, as well as our neonatal intensive care units, attract patients from the entire tri-state area. For some families, this means having their baby far away from their own pediatrician. The pediatric hospitalist newborn service, led by an experienced general pediatrician and newborn specialist, provides pediatric care for newborns in the first days of life and support for their parents. The newborn team will:

  • Meet with the parents of the newborn daily and provide anticipatory guidance
  • Coordinate with lactation consultants (as needed)
  • Coordinate the care or involvement of any specialists or refer the newborn for care in the NICU
  • Upon discharge, communicate information about the baby’s care to your family’s primary care physician
