Inova Children's Hospital is a 226-bed, full-service children's hospital devoted to the healthcare of infants, children and adolescents in the Northern Virginia area. The newly expanded facility opened in 2016, providing state-of-the-art technology, research and teaching innovations, and a dedicated team approach to patient care. As Northern Virginia's only pediatric tertiary care center, the Inova Children's Hospital provides the highest level of care for pediatric patients, in a technologically advanced, yet child-friendly environment, close to home.
Our Pediatric hospitalists provide 24/7 in-house coverage of the pediatric medical unit, daily coverage of the newborn nursery (no delivery attendance), and consultative services to our surgical colleagues. Our pediatric hospitalist program seeks a full-time Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner to assist in caring for inpatient general pediatric patients. They will join 24 dedicated pediatric hospitalists in their endeavor to provide expert care of children from birth to young adulthood. This will entail working side by side with hospitalists in covering general pediatric inpatients with daily bedside rounding, performing H&P's, completing priority discharges, performing consults, and covering an "uncovered" service when the resident census is high. There may be opportunities to participate in newborn nursery care as well.
The qualified applicant is able to:
-communicate and coordinate care for patients with medical needs from multiple subspecialties
- liaise with case managers, nurses and other healthcare staff to ensure the highest quality of care
-encourage and participate in an outstanding patient experience
-willing to participate in quality improvement initiatives
