Hospital Medicine Services

Carrie Lind M.D.

Having your child admitted to the hospital can be a complex and confusing experience. That's why the doctors and nurse practitioners on our Hospital Medicine team manage your child's care while keeping you and your child's doctor informed at every step.

You may hear people refer to our Hospital Medicine doctors as hospitalists. They are specialists who:

  • See your child and coordinate his or her care every day at the hospital
  • Order tests and keep you informed about diagnoses and treatment options
  • Work closely with your child's primary care doctor
  • Coordinate visits with specialists
  • Respond to emergencies or changes in your child’s condition
  • Advocate for patient safety
  • Improve hospital quality

Our team is available at the hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for phone consultation or for management of patients who require hospitalization, all in collaboration with your primary care physician. Contact us at (615) 936-4444.

Near the end of your hospital stay, a member of our team will share instructions for at-home care and following up with your child's doctor.
