All inpatients are cared for at internationally renowned University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, which is a 244 bed full-service children's hospital and pediatric academic medical center with experts in 16 medical and 12 surgical subspecialties. UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital offers access to novel therapies, advanced technologies and clinical discoveries before they are available nationwide. Our pediatric specialists – all of whom serve on the faculty at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine – are engaged in today’s most advanced clinical research and are widely regarded as leaders in their field.
The clinic at the main campus is dedicated to providing the fellows with true continuity of their own patient cohort. Faculty members see outpatients at several suburban locations around Cleveland: the main UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital campus and four suburban locations approximately 20 minutes east and west of the main campus. In their second and third year, fellows will have the opportunity to rotate in satellite clinics where they provide care to patients with diverse backgrounds in a setting reminiscent to private practice. All outpatient locations have on-site radiology, laboratory services, computers and access to University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Electronic Health Record and Radiology Viewing systems.
Pediatric Endoscopy Suite
Most pediatric gastrointestinal procedures are performed either in the pediatric endoscopy suite or the pediatric operating rooms at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Occasional procedures are performed at the bedside in the intensive care units. Sedation and anesthesia are managed by pediatric anesthesiologists or critical care specialists. Endoscopes that are suitable for all children ranging from premature infants to adolescents are available. There is a simulation lab available to help fellows become familiar with the techniques of scoping.
