Inpatient Pediatric Hospitalists

When your child is a patient in our warm, welcoming pediatric Unit at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare - All Saints, our expertly trained pediatric hospitalists will be there, around the clock, to handle their needs.

Who are pediatric hospitalists?

Hospitalists are doctors who have chosen to specialize in providing care in the hospital setting. Our team of pediatric hospitalists at All Saints are on staff 24/7 and specifically assigned to each child to meet his or her needs. They also are readily available if you or a family member wants to talk with your child’s doctor.

Because hospitalists are on site, they can review tests quickly and handle discharges efficiently. They also provide emergency department consultations, so if you bring your child to the emergency department, a pediatric hospitalist will participate in the decision about whether or not to hospitalize him or her.

We partner with Advocate Medical Group of Chicago to provide pediatric hospitalists. Founded in 1980, Advocate Medical Group consists of a group of pediatricians and subspecialists and is one of the leading medical group practices in Chicago.

Hospitalists & Your Primary Care Doctor

While the hospitalist provides day-to-day care for your child, your primary care doctor is always kept informed through personal and electronic media. Decisions are made as partners, but the hospitalist orders lab tests, reviews test results and handles other necessary care during hospitalization.

After discharge from the hospital, you will continue to see your child’s primary care doctor for all follow-up care. If your primary care doctor is a Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group physician, he or she has ready access to your child’s electronic medical record too.
