Abstract

Hospitalists are increasingly providing comanagement of surgical patients. Limited data published regarding hospitalist comanagement of adult surgical patients have suggested that these partnerships may help improve outcomes and limit resource usage. Pediatric surgical comanagement programs at community hospitals will face different clinical challenges than those at tertiary referral pediatric centers. Pediatric hospitalists providing surgical comanagement must also address specific administrative issues including program structure, communication, staffing, and finances.
