In some situations, patients will require a hospital stay for further treatment or diagnosis. All inpatients on the Pulmonary inpatient service will continue to receive multi-disciplinary care from a team that includes physicians, nurses, nutritionists, and social workers. As The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is a leading teaching hospital, patients will also be cared for by pediatric residents and medical students, always under the supervision of an attending pediatric pulmonologist.
If our patients require the services of our renowned Pediatric or Neonatal Intensive Care Units, they will continue to be seen by the pulmonary doctors.
Pulmonary patients will be seen at least once every day by an attending pulmonologist. A discharge summary will be send to the patient’s primary doctor.
While at Children's Hospital, families may visit the Connelly Resource Center for Families located on the eighth floor of the Main Building. This beautiful facility offers a Family Learning Center, Family Library, Children's Library and a place to attend to business needs, in addition to many home-like amenities.
Whether a common or rare condition is being treated, our patients receive the same care and attention by pediatric pulmonologists, pediatric nurses and other ancillary specialists exclusively devoted to the health of children from birth through adolescence.
