Hospital Privileges

Our physicians have admitting privileges at both Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and for newborns at St. Elizabeth Healthcare Edgewood Campus.

If you deliver at a hospital other than St. Elizabeth, our doctors will not be able to care for your newborn.  If your child is admitted to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital our doctors communicate closely with the physicians on staff to provide care for your child.  If your child is admitted somewhere other than Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, we are unable to provide medical care during your child’s stay.  Therefore, whenever possible, our doctors feel it is best for your child to be admitted to a hospital where we can provide continuity of care as your pediatrician. Please call our office prior to discharge to set up an appointment.

If your child is admitted to a hospital where we do not have privileges, it is advised to sign a record of release (from the hospital) so that our office can obtain the records of your child’s stay. These records will go in your child’s permanent medical records and be available to our physicians for follow-up care.
