Background

Victoria Johnson, DO FAAP is an Attending Physician within the Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. Johnson completed her graduate medical education at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford Maine, and her post-graduate residency training in Pediatrics at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland Maine. Dr. Johnson joined PACT in 2016 after completing her fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta/Emory University.

I am honored to work within a robust interdisciplinary team that offers palliative care services to patients and families who are facing serious illness. Based on our team structure we are able to form longitudinal relationships that span inpatient hospitalizations, outpatient clinic appointments, and at home visits to support these children and families in celebration of the good days and to offer support when times are hard. I feel such gratitude in being able to care for children and families who share with us their incredible strength, resilience, and unyielding love.
