Welcome to Pediatric Hospital Medicine

The Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine at Children's Hospital Colorado is rapidly expanding, with the recruitment of some of the nation’s best and brightest pediatric hospitalists. As we expand our academic, quality improvement, and educational programs, we continue to provide expert inpatient medical care for children throughout Colorado, and beyond.

Our hospitalists offer 24 hours a day, seven days a week pediatric hospitalist services at Children's Colorado main campus and at our Network of Care (NOC) locations. We aim to provide:

  • exemplary family-centered care to our patients and families
  • seamless communication to referring community providers
  • a focus on educating fellowsresidents, medical students, and advance practice provider students in the field of general pediatric hospital medicine
  • scholarship in all areas that impact inpatient pediatric care

All of our faculty members bring a strong clinical focus, while several are also pursuing research in education and clinical hospital medicine. Our faculty also serve in administrative capacities for the University, Children's Hospital, and in our NOC sites.

Our hospitalists have extensive interaction with pediatric and family medicine residents, as well as medical students and physician assistant students.
