Physician Liaisons and Physician Services Program
 

The mission of Physician Services is to assess continually the needs of the community physicians, improve communication and grow relationships between community physicians and Children’s Hospital faculty and staff.  We commit to being responsive and strive to increase physician satisfaction and develop stronger physician/hospital relationships.

  
The Physician Liaisons and Physician Services Program address the needs of community physicians. The department functions as a direct liaison between the physicians’ offices and Children’s Hospital services to achieve improved communication and relationships. Staff members help solve problems and serve as a resource for admitting members of our medical staff and referring physicians. Maintaining positive physician relationships is our primary goal.
