How Children's Hospitals Differ from General Acute Care Facilities

Physician contracting programs at Children's Hospitals contain a number of key differences that distinguish these specialty facilties from General Acute Care hospitals. Pediatric facilities understandably have a specific set of patients and, as a result, they have different physician contracting needs than most hospitals.

MD Ranger's physician contracting benchmarks collect data on position count at hospitals, broken down by type of physician contract. As the graph shows, Children's Hospitals contract for significantly more Medical Direction positions than a general acute care facility.

One major reason for this differential is the need for medical directors of pediatric service lines. Children's Hospitals are also frequently affiliated with Academic Medical Centers, and AMCs typically contract for more administrative and direction positions to help oversee education and research programs.
