Care is provided as part of an ongoing pediatric alliance between CHOP and Grand View Health; drawing the finest from both groups of clinicians – world-class pediatric experts from CHOP and dedicated, local staff who have built long-term relationships with families.
CHOP pediatric services available at Grand View Health (GVH) include:
- Pediatric inpatient care and monitoring by experienced CHOP pediatric hospitalists
- Consultation for pediatric emergencies
- Inpatient newborn care and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
- Pediatric specialty consultation, testing and imaging
The relationship between CHOP and GVH brings the best of academic medicine – cutting-edge research, standardized clinical pathways that ensure consistency of care, and innovative quality improvement projects – close to home for families in Bucks County, PA. Together, we elevate the care your child has access to, leading to improved outcomes and a better quality of life for your family.
Inpatient Pediatric Care
CHOP provides a team of pediatric hospitalists on-site 24/7 to care for children and adolescents who are admitted to the inpatient pediatric unit at GVH. Pediatric hospitalists – all of whom are board certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics and certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – are attending physicians who specialize in the care of hospitalized infants, children and teens.
Children may require hospitalization for a wide range of illnesses and injuries, from respiratory and digestive issues to bone, joint or nerve injuries. Together, our teams are equipped to provide the best possible care for your child, close to home. In the event your child has a more serious issue that requires highly specialized care, transport to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia can be arranged in partnership with community physicians.
A pediatric hospitalist is always on-site, providing:
- Around-the-clock evaluation and treatment for your child, and the ability to respond quickly to any emergencies that arise
- Close coordination with pediatric specialists and your child’s primary care physician
- Easy access to parents and families to answer questions and discuss your child’s illness with you
- Consultation in the emergency room as needed
Depending on your child’s length of stay in the hospital, more than one member of the CHOP team may be involved in their care. Physicians will coordinate with each other on daily rounds, share information with you and provide a consistent approach to your child’s care and treatment. Once your child is well enough to leave the hospital, this team will coordinate with your child’s pediatrician, specialist or family physician to ensure consistency in their ongoing care.
Newborn & NICU Care
Board-certified neonatologists and certified neonatal nurse practitioners from CHOP provide high-quality, specialized newborn and neonatal intensive care to babies at Grand View Health. Our team collaborates with families and primary care physicians to ensure every newborn receives the care they need, backed by the resources of CHOP – a world leader in neonatal medicine – and the experience, comfort and convenience provided at a community hospital.
Some of the babies born here each year are born prematurely, experience respiratory problems at birth, or require additional treatment or observation due to other health complications.
For these most vulnerable patients, CHOP clinicians also provide 24/7 care and services to babies in Grand View Health’s Well Nursery, Labor & Delivery Unit and Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) including:
- Comprehensive respiratory and feeding support
- Specialty and multidisciplinary evaluations
- Advanced testing and imaging
- Referrals to specialists as needed
Pediatric Specialty Consultations
Select pediatric specialty services from CHOP are also available as part of our collaboration with Grand View Health, including:
- Pediatric cardiology services, consultation and evaluation of cardiac testing (such as echocardiography and electrocardiogram)
CHOP’s team of board-certified neonatologists, pediatric hospitalists, pediatric specialists and advanced practice providers offer comprehensive and individualized care for babies, children and teens at Grand View Health.
