Fairmount Pediatrics
and Adolescent Medicine


colorful-tree.pngIf a child needs to go the emergency department or to be admitted to the hospital, you may go directly to the emergency department. If you prefer, Dr. Lieberman will facilitate this by first determining if the parent prefers a particular hospital. CHOP, St. Christopher’s, Thomas Jefferson, Abington, and Bryn Mawr all have good inpatient pediatric programs, and pediatricians to see patients in the Emergency Department if needed. The emergency departments at CHOP and St. Christopher’s are always staffed by pediatric emergency specialists.

Next, Dr. Lieberman will contact the emergency department or the inpatient specialist to make a personal referral for the child. The child can be transported to the hospital, either by the parents or in an ambulance. The emergency room and inpatient specialists then take over the care of the sick child, maintaining excellent communication with Dr. Lieberman.

After a child has been admitted to the hospital, please follow your insurance company requirements to reduce your risk of payment problems.

HMOs do require physicians to choose a ‘capitated’ site for x-rays, radiology, physical therapy, and podiatry from a limited number of sites. If you have an HMO and Fairmount Pediatrics is your primary care office, please contact your insurance for this information.

After discharge, the child will once again resume care at Advocare Fairmount Pediatrics.
