Hospitalist Services

The MUSC Pediatric Hospitalist Service is a dedicated team of highly trained academic pediatricians committed to providing the highest quality of inpatient care to your pediatric patients.  At times, your child’s primary care physician may request that a specially-trained pediatrician, called a hospitalist, oversee your child’s care during his or her stay at the MUSC Children's Hospital.

Pediatric Hospitalists...

  • evaluate patients for potential admission through the pediatric emergency department.
  • admit patients, develop plans for diagnosis and treatment within 24 hours of admission.
  • coordinate sub-specialty and surgical consults, as needed, while continuing to oversee the overall care of the patient.
  • maintain open lines of communication with patients and their families throughout their stay and upon their discharge.
  • maintain open lines of communication with patients' physicians.
  • provide a detailed discharge summary for patients and their physicians.
