If your child has an illness or injury that requires hospitalization or is born at Sarah Bush Lincoln, he or she may be cared for by one of our pediatric hospitalists.
Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who work primarily in hospitals. They care for children in many hospital areas, including the pediatric unit, labor and delivery, the newborn nursery, and the emergency department.
Pediatric hospitalists work with your pediatrician and other physicians and providers involved in your child’s care. If there is a significant change in your child’s condition, a pediatric hospitalist will update your pediatrician. When your child leaves the hospital, a pediatric hospitalist will give your pediatrician an overview of your child’s hospital stay and detailed instructions for any necessary further care.
The hospitalists' office is located on the ground floor of the Health Center. For more information, call the Hospitalist office at 217-238-HEAL (4325).
