Join a well established group of Pediatric Hospitalists that provide excellent care for both the general pediatric and medically complex hospitalized children of Northern Virginia. At Inova Children's Hospital, our commitment is to provide world-class care in a child friendly environment, close to home. Our coverage includes the Valley Health, Winchester Medical Center in Winchester Virginia with 24/7 Pediatric Hospitalist and soon to be expanding Pediatric Emergency Department. Pediatric care at Winchester will be provided with around-the-clock in-house coverage for the general pediatric ward, newborn nursery, and future opening of a pediatric ED. We also participate in graduate medical education of Family Practice residents. We do not cover newborn deliveries or the NICU, as there is a separate Neonatology service. This is an exciting opportunity to help expand the pediatric hospitalist and pediatric emergency department capabilities and establish new policies and protocols in conjunction with the established outpatient pediatricians in this growing community. Winchester Medical Center, a 445-bed, non-profit hospital in Winchester, VA ( https://www.winchesterva.gov/visitors ), is a regional referral center offering a broad spectrum of services that includes diagnostic, medical, surgical and rehabilitative care. A Level II Trauma Center, Winchester Medical Center (WMC) is a resource for 400,000 residents in a region known as the Top of Virginia, plus neighboring West Virginia and Maryland. Women and Children's Services at Valley Health are dedicated to providing compassionate and expert care in labor & delivery, mother/baby care, neonatal intensive care, pediatrics and women's health. The Pediatrics unit provides inpatient services for children from birth to 18 years of age. There is a comprehensive approach to children's health, from special needs to preventive care. The 17-bed unit is arranged and decorated with children in mind, staffed by highly experienced pediatric nurses and a child life specialist with a play room for patients and their families. Located within the Mother/Baby unit is the Newborn Nursery staffed by experienced well-baby nurses and lactation specialists. Here, babies receive the medical attention they need during their first few days, including their first physical, vaccinations and circumcisions for boys if parents choose. Winchester is located about 75 miles outside of Washington DC in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. The Emergency Department sees over 9000 pediatric patients annually.
