CHOP Pediatric Care at Abington Memorial Hospital is a joint service of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Abington Memorial Hospital.
Pediatric hospitalists provide around-the-clock inpatient medical care for children in our 15-bed facility as well as consultation to the emergency department. There are two Pediatric Special Care Unit beds available for acutely ill children in need of closer monitoring. Our nursing staff is specialty trained in pediatrics to provide quality care for ill children.
Pediatricians and family physicians in the community may refer children to our pediatric hospitalists for evaluation and care when hospitalization is needed. Primary care providers are kept up to date with patients' progress by telephone and timely discharge summaries.
Subspecialty pediatricians from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are available for outpatient consultations at Abington Memorial Hospital. The subspecialties represented include pediatric gastroenterology, pediatric cardiology and pediatric pulmonology.
