Division of Inpatient Medicine
The Division of Pediatric Inpatient Medicine is a group of hospitalist physicians dedicated to caring for hospitalized infants, children, and adolescents.
Our hospitalists are board-certified or board eligible in family medicine, pediatrics, or in both internal medicine and pediatrics. The group cares primarily for patients admitted to Primary Children’s Hospital (PCH) who do not have primary care physicians or whose primary physicians do not have hospital privileges.
Our group also cares for medically complex patients referred by their primary care physicians. Pediatric hospitalists work closely with the PCH surgeons for post-operative management of specific patient populations.
Our Commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We are the Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine, and the heart of the University of Utah-Intermountain Healthcare pediatric partnership. We acknowledge that systemic racism is perpetuated by structures and policies foundational to our institutions. With humility and curiosity, we commit to change. We commit to sustained, demonstrable, and meaningful anti-racism actions, so that our hospital becomes a safe, brave space that puts the “Child First and Always.” We commit to empowering every healthcare worker to prevent harm and promote well-being for our patients and our communities. We commit to systematically changing the environment of our institution so that employees, trainees and students who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) feel not only safe and included, but also are able to thrive and prosper. We recognize the need to balance the value of embracing discomfort with the imperative to create a psychologically safe environment, free of retaliation. We are committed to being leaders in creating an anti-racism culture that values inclusion, diversity, and equity for the University of Utah Department of Pediatrics and Primary Children’s Hospital. To advance our commitment, we have developed strategic plans within the following five areas: 1) Individual actions and response; 2) optimizing clinical practice; 3) optimizing workforce development and professional education; 4) optimizing systems through community engagement, advocacy and public policy; and 5) optimizing research.
