Pediatrics at Thomas Hospital

When a child is sick or injured, the whole family is affected. At Thomas Hospital, we treat our youngest patients with exceptional care, and we provide their families the respect and compassion learned from years of experience in pediatric medicine.

Who takes care of my hospitalized child if my pediatrician doesn't treat children in the hospital?

Pediatric hospitalists step in when your child's pediatrician does not make hospital visits. The pediatric hospitalists at Thomas Hospital treat children from birth to 18-years of age and are available for emergency and inpatient care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The pediatric hospitalist service is provided by Thomas Hospital's Department of Pediatrics which includes Dr. Jessica Kirk, Dr. Danielle Gilliam and Dr. Karen Parsell. Together, these physicians have almost 50 years of experience in pediatric medicine, ranging from clinic visits to emergency room treatment and inpatient hospital care.
