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.
