BCHP Specialty: Pediatric Hospitalists

Our pediatric hospitalists provide 24-hour inpatient coverage to the children of the Hudson Valley who are referred to Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. Our physicians work as a team with the medical and surgical specialists at the hospital to provide expert, comprehensive care to children with moderate to severe illness and complex, chronic conditions.

Our team is dedicated to coordinating care during a child’s hospitalization and facilitating a seamless transfer back to the referring doctor when the child is ready to be discharged from the hospital.
