Children's Hospital at Montefiore Doctors in First Group of Board Certified Pediatric Hospitalists


Ten pediatricians at Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) successfully completed the first-ever Pediatric Hospital Medicine subspecialty board examination established by the American Board of Pediatrics. Pediatric hospitalists specialize in inpatient pediatric medicine, providing direct patient care, consultations and coordination of care for children in the hospital. CHAM's Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM) was launched in 2007, notes Patricia A. Hametz, MD, MPH, Chief of PHM and Associate Professor, Pediatrics, Montefiore and Einstein, and one of the 10 physicians to complete the Pediatric Hospital Medicine Subspecialty Board Examination this past November. "We have an accomplished team of pediatric specialists who have already been providing excellent care to children during their stay at CHAM," says Dr. Hametz.
