Pediatric Hospitalists staff our 39 bed general medical-surgical unit.
Pediatric hospitalists are specially training doctors who treat pediatric
patients while they are in the hospital. They work in close cooperation
with your child’s primary care physician to ensure a seamless, efficient
continuum of care.
Because they practice only in the hospital, these specialists are able
to see and address issues as soon as they arise. Additionally, they are
available to answer questions from staff and family members promptly.
They are familiar with hospital operations and work closely with other
members of your child’s healthcare team.
Our Hospitalist team is staffed in collaboration with Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC).
In addition to a fully proficient medical staff, Covenant Children’s
is a teaching hospital, committed to training the next generation of medical
professionals. Evidence-based literature shows that teaching hospitals
have better patient outcomes than non-teaching hospitals. You are likely
to see a very team-based approach to care with a multi-disciplinary team
caring for your child.
As a primary pediatric teaching facility, we proudly partner with Texas
Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) to host medical students
and residents, training them to be the future leaders in pediatric care.
Each year we have approximately 24 pediatric residents on rotation.
