Our physicians provide 24/7 in house coverage both at Texas Children’s Hospital Main Campus and West Campus. We care for the hospitalized patients of more than 500 primary care physicians and in addition, we accept patients from the critical care service, inpatient transfers from outlying hospitals and direct admissions from some area emergency rooms. We co-manage patients with the surgeons and surgical subspecialists at West Campus.
PHM physicians take active leadership roles in administrative initiatives for Texas Children’s Hospital. We are the largest general inpatient teaching service for Texas Children’s Hospital and serve as the primary educators of Baylor College of Medicine pediatric residents and medical students in general inpatient pediatrics. We also participate in quality improvement initiatives and conduct ongoing research.
