Hospitalist Program at Health Services for Children (HSC) Pediatric Center
Health Services for Children (HSC) Pediatric Center provides rehabilitation and transitional care to help patients and families prepare for the return home after a stay at the hospital. HSC is one of only 20 facilities nationwide to offer such services. HSC is the only rehabilitation facility in the Washington, DC, area dedicated exclusively for patients from infancy through 21 years of age.
Since July 2005, Children’s National Medical Center has provided all medical staff services at HSC, including inpatient hospitalists and specialty consultations. We aim to help all infants, children, and adolescents reach their full potential.
