During your hospital stay, a team of physicians, nurses, therapists, technicians and specialists work together to ensure that you receive the best medical care. Watauga Pediatric Hospitalists include board-certified pediatricians who care for infants, children, and adolescents while they are in the hospital. These providers are there shortly after a mother gives birth to care for the newborn, as well as treating children or adolescents who find themselves in the hospital for various reasons. The MAHEC Rural Family Medicine Residency program also works with Watauga Pediatric Hospitalists, placing residents in rotation for pediatric medicine.
Patient’s care teams include, but are not limited to: admissions specialists, case managers, social workers, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, x-ray technicians, financial navigators, insurance specialists and physicians, many of whom work behind the scenes to support those who work at your bedside.
