Countdown to a Mountain of Miracles -What is a hospitalist?

We're counting down to the 92.9 The Mountain's Radiothon - A Mountain of Miracles. The Radiothon benefits our local Children's Miracle Network hospital, TMC for Children, and so the children of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Each day we're taking time to recognize some aspect of TMC for Children that the funds raised have an impact on. Today is day six and we're meeting one of our hospitalists, Dr. Villar.

That's Dr. Villar blowing the bubbles to distract Arian while Nurse Penny takes his blood pressure. Making the new TMC for Children especially child-friendly has been a goal of the Children's Miracle Network funds.
Dr. Villar is one of our excellent hospitalists. Like our other TMC Pediatric Hospitalists, Dr.Villar specializes in the care of newborns and hospitalized children. Hospitalists are experts in the care of inpatients, from the most common diagnosis to the most complex cases. Our pediatric hospitalists can focus solely on caring for children and families while in the hospital since they do not have private practices or other clinics outside the hospital.

If your child has to come to the hospital, your child's pediatrician will work with our hospitalists to make sure that your child receives the very best care. While a child is hospitalized at TMC for Children, our hospitalist partners with the community pediatrician to arrange specialty consults and rounds with other interdisciplinary team members to provide comprehensive, family-centered care to patients and assure quality clinical outcomes.


We are proud to work with some of the best community pediatricians and the relationship between them and our hospitalists is vital. Dr.Villar demonstrates his dedication and passion for serving our young patients daily and he and his family have shown this passion for making TMC for Children a child friendly, beautiful environment by donating the frames for much of the stunning child art we have in TMC for Children.
