Specialty Care You Can Trust

Finding your child the best care possible is easy with the pediatric department at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital. We understand the concerns that you and your child may have, and we’re committed to providing quality care and comfortable accommodations to make your child's visit as pleasant as possible.

Our comprehensive medical services work to get your child back to health as soon as possible, with help from highly skilled and experienced pediatricians, pediatric surgeons, nurses and other specially trained staff.

Pediatric Hospitalist Program

Providing high-quality care and a friendly environment for pediatric patients is an important focus at Cy-Fair Hospital. That is why we’re proud to introduce the Pediatric Hospitalist Program.

Our Pediatric Hospitalist Program ensures your child will have access to pediatric specialists 24 hours a day, seven days a week — meaning your child will receive specialized pediatric care right when it’s needed. Pediatric hospitalists provide care to children for any condition that requires hospitalization — from asthma and bronchitis to stomach bugs, appendicitis, bronchitis, pneumonia and everything in between. Hospitalists admit the children to the hospital on behalf of the child’s pediatrician, care for them during their hospital stay and discharge them when it’s time to go home.

Doctor Spotlight: Stella Kalu, M.D.

In her role as a pediatric hospitalist, Dr. Kalu takes care of hospitalized children, filling the gap for pediatricians who are taking care of patients in the clinic during the day. She acts as a liaison between the pediatrician and the patient, working closely with the pediatricians to provide quality care to hospitalized patients when their pediatrician cannot physically be with their patients who are in the hospital. Dr. Kalu was named Physician of the Year at Cy-Fair Hospital in 2015.

Parents typically love that we offer this service. We take the place of the pediatrician while the child is hospitalized, and we have more time to spend with the family. We’re readily available and able to give parents our undivided attention, which is crucial when a child is in the hospital.

— Dr. Kalu
