Pediatric Hospitalists
We know nothing is more important to you than your child’s health. That’s why Carolinas Healthcare System’s Cleveland Regional Medical Center has board-certified pediatricians available 24/7 to care for your child.

Known as hospitalists, these doctors work only in the hospital and truly understand the unique needs and complexities of caring for hospitalized children. They will manage and coordinate your child’s care while he or she is in the hospital and will work closely with your child’s primary pediatrician and other specialists before, during and after hospitalization, to ensure a seamless transition of care.

Our pediatric hospitalists are affiliated with Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, which means your child will receive world-class care right in your community. And if more advanced care is needed, we can arrange to safely transport you and your child to Levine Children’s Hospital.
