Pediatric Primary Care
Pediatric specialty clinics
MassGeneral Hospital for Children offers the following pediatric specialty clinics:
MassGeneral for Children has pediatric hospitalists on staff. Our pediatric hospitalists manage the care of pediatric patients during their stay in hospital. They monitor every child's progress and are accessible in cases of emergencies or if concerns arise. They ensure fast turnaround of tests and treatments and keep each child’s pediatrician and family members informed.
After a child is discharged from the hospital, our pediatric hospitalists help ensure a smooth transition of care back to his or her pediatrician or family medicine physician. They can also help family members find a physician if the child does not have one.
Electronic medical records
Many pediatric primary care physicians on the North Shore use a shared electronic medical record system. This creates seamless communication between Salem Hospital and all other members of the Mass General Brigham network.
