The mission of the Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM)is to provide high quality evidence- based medical care to patients who are admitted to The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center, actively engage in exceptional medical student and resident education surrounding the care and coordination of care of inpatients, and contribute to the local and national medical community through patient safety initiatives, quality improvement projects, hospital protocol and policy development, advocacy, and clinical research efforts.

Vision

The Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine aims to be a unified group of physicians and advance practice providers who excel in all aspects of the direct patient care of hospitalized children and their transition from the hospital; is actively engaged in local hospital policy, protocol and care advances; is regularly involved in student, resident, and fellow education through didactic teaching and mentorship; and contributes regularly to the field of hospital medicine as a whole through scholarly endeavors.

The Pediatric Hospitalist Program at OU Children’s is in its 14th year of service providing inpatient care to children from across the state of Oklahoma (and sometimes beyond).  All our patient care is provided at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical System, Oklahoma’s only free- standing children’s hospital.
