Hopkins Children’s was one of the first hospitals in this country to create a hospitalist program in pediatrics.
Our Pediatric Hospitalist Service consists of four hospitalists who consult and coordinate with surgical services in General Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Otolaryngology, Plastic Surgery and Urology. The Pediatric Hospitalist Service can be paged 24 hours a day/7 days a week at: 410-434-4677.
For more information about our hospitalist program, contact hospitalist Heidi Wolf.
