USA Children's & Women's Hospital has established a comprehensive hospitalist program to facilitate referrals from physicians in our region. Our hospitalists are a pediatric-faculty team available to accept your referrals, assist you in coordinating hospital admissions and follow your patients during hospitalization.

We offer a convenient and efficient referral process through our Pediatric Hospitalist Referral Line at (251) 300-9767.

Please note this line is meant only for physician referrals. Patients can call the front desk of USA Children's & Women's Hospital at (251) 415-1000, or they can call our Patient Navigator at (251) 434-3711 to set up an appointment with any USA Physicians Group provider.
