Bristol Hospital is one of the only community hospitals in Connecticut to have a 24/7 pediatric hospitalist program for our young patients. Pediatric hospitalists are physicians who care for children in all areas of the hospital. They are present for all births and provide newborn care in our Families Are First unit. They can provide inpatient care for children of any age. Our pediatric hospitalists are all Fellows of the Academy of Pediatrics and are trained in neonatal resuscitation and advanced pediatric life support.
Bristol Hospital entered into a formal partnership agreement with Connecticut Children's Medical Center
providing a link for Bristol Hospital and its community physicians to continue medical education in pediatric health from Connecticut Children's, and 24-hour consultation services and medical staff privileges. Our relationship with CCMC
means that we are truly "Partners In Children's Health." With this affiliation, we are able to bring specialized pediatric care closer to the communities where our young patients live. Access to high-quality pediatric care in our community allows children and their families to remain closer to home.
