World-class care with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

To better serve the needs of young patients and families, we have formed an alliance with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a leader in pediatric patient care and research, which continually earns a place on the U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll of the nation's best children's hospitals.

Pediatric hospitalists (doctors who specialize in hospital care) and cardiologists from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia provide inpatient care in Lancaster General Hospital’s Pediatric Unit and Emergency Department. Pediatric specialists from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia offer outpatient care in a variety of specialties at our Suburban Pavilion, giving families access to world-class care right here at home.

Our physicians from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia work in collaboration with your child’s LG Health pediatrician or family physician to provide the highest quality care. Your providers share access to your child’s medical records, so treatment plans are well coordinated, and any follow-up visits, tests, or services can be easily arranged — whether here in Lancaster or at any of the CHOP Specialty Care Centers, if more complex care is needed.

 

Dedicated pediatric inpatient care

If your child is admitted to Lancaster General Hospital, board-certified hospitalists from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provide 24/7 inpatient pediatric care and coordinate with your child’s primary care physician.

Lancaster General Hospital is the only hospital in the area with an entire family-friendly unit dedicated to the care of infants, children and adolescents up to age 17. Visitation for parents is unlimited, and each room includes accommodations for one parent to spend the night.

While in the hospital, your child will receive inpatient care from admission through discharge. Our hospitalists will visit regularly and coordinate your child’s care plan. They will order any necessary tests, procedures and medications, follow-up on results, and make any appropriate adjustments.

In the event that your child requires a more advanced level of care, our alliance with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia gives families seamless access to the renowned resources of their main hospital. The team at LG Health will coordinate your child’s care and provide guidance and support to your family at every step. Information about visiting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia can be found here.
