Pediatric Hospital Medicine

eberlyleroy2011Children and teens admitted to Akron Children’s in Akron or Boardman, or to the pediatric unit at MedCentral in Mansfield, may be assigned to an inpatient doctor or hospitalist, upon their primary care doctor’s request. Our hospitalists are board-certified pediatricians who specialize in managing the care of pediatric hospitalized patients.

Our hospitalists will help you diagnose and manage your patient’s care by:

  • Visiting and treating your patient on your behalf
  • Consulting with specialists, as needed
  • Ordering tests and procedures
  • Providing attentive, personalized care
  • Communicating with you and other doctors and healthcare professionals involved in your patient’s care, as well as with Children’s Home Care Group and your patient’s school or daycare, as necessary

While your patient is in the hospital, a hospitalist will see him or her each morning and as often as needed during the day. We try to have the same hospitalist manage your patient’s care whenever possible.
