Pediatric Hospitalist Program

Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who work primarily within the hospital setting. Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers’ Pediatric Hospitalists provide 24-hour coverage, 7 days a week for Wayne Memorial Hospital. They care for newborns, attend high risk and C-section births as well as offer Emergency Department On-call support. All of our pediatric hospitalists are experienced in Neonatal Advanced Life Support. To ensure continuity of care and proper follow up, the Pediatrics Department will be in communication with your child’s pediatric or primary care office.
