About
the
Directory
This publication is intended to be a quick
reference for referring physicians and
their staffs, providing a general overview
of Children's of Alabama and its specialty
care and support services on campus.
This directory is not a comprehensive
medical staff directory.
This information and more is also available on our web site,
www.ChildrensAL.org. Many physicians in private practice have
privileges at Children's of Alabama and may be included on the website
upon request.
The Directory of Pediatric Services is printed annually by the Children's
of Alabama Corporate Communications Department. All information
has been verified and was accurate at time of printing.
Any edits or additions for future editions are welcome and can be

Dear Colleague:
We are pleased to provide you with the 2013
Directory of Pediatric Services. Please replace any
older versions with this one. You can also find the
most up-to-date directory and other resources for
referring physicians on the Healthcare Professional
section of www.ChildrensAL.org.
We believe that all children should have a healthy childhood.
This core belief drives us further in our mission to help prevent,
treat and put an end to pediatric injury and disease.
When it comes to caring for children, “good enough” isn’t good
enough. That's why we opened the amazing new 12-story Benjamin
Russell Hospital for Children last year. With an estimated square
footage in excess of 760,000 square feet, it is the largest medical
facility expansion in the history of Alabama and makes us the third
largest pediatric medical center in the nation.
But in addition to the finest in facilities and technology, we also have
teamed with the brightest and most inquiring minds, the most skilled
hands and the most compassionate hearts in pediatric medicine.
Through those who share our mission, children who are sick and
injured have access to the most current treatments and advances
in technology, all in the hands of world-class caregivers and
performed in a facility that is simply spectacular.
Every child deserves healthcare as amazing as their potential.
Very truly yours,
Wm. Michael Warren, Jr.
Chief Executive Officer
Children’s of Alabama

One Stop Calling/
Patient Placement
(205) 638-7200
One Stop Calling/Patient Placement assists
referring physicians in admitting patients to
Children's of Alabama in an emergency situation.
If a child is seen by his primary care doctor and is deemed ill enough
to need a bed right away,referring pediatricians should call this number
to make immediate placement arrangements.
How does it work?
1. Receive call from referring physician
2. Obtain information about patient and a direct
call-back number
3. Contact appropriate Children's of Alabama physician
and initiate conference call
4. If decision is made to transfer, the Patient Placement
Coordinator will call referring facility with room and
phone number for the nurse to call report
Physician Link
(205) 638-7479
Physician Link is a telephone resource for referring physicians to use
for any non-emergency issues or concerns.
This is also the best way for primary care physicians and office staff
to receive guidance throughout the referral process and obtain
general Children's information.
Referring physicians can:
Ŕ Call Monday-Friday, 8 am-4:30 pm
Ŕ Provide general information
Ŕ Assist in patient follow-up
Ŕ Assist in physician concerns
Ŕ Resolve issues/concerns
Ŕ Help facilitate the patient referral process

Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children
The Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children is located on the block directly
north of the McWane Building (formerly the main hospital) and is bridged to
the existing Children’s facilities (McWane, Children’s Harbor and Children’s Park
Place) and to the UAB Women and Infants Center.
Square footage of the 12-story building exceeds 760,000 square feet, making
it the largest medical facility expansion in the history of Alabama. With the
addition, bed licensing for Children's has increased from 275 to 332, plus 48
NICU bassinets.
The Russell Building features larger patient rooms, a much larger emergency
department and two additional general operating rooms. Two cardiac ORs
dedicated to pediatric cardiovascular surgery have been relocated from UAB
to the new Children's facility.
The new facility, which opened on August 4, 2012, enabled consolidation of
pediatric services with a family-centered design to enhance patient and family
comfort. The building will accommodate projected growth in patient volume,
as well as anticipated medical technology needs.
The building, along with the entire downtown campus, is named in honor
of legendary Alabama entrepreneur Benjamin Russell (1876-1941) and to
recognize the $25 million gift from his grandson, Ben Russell and Ben’s wife
Luanne, both longtime hospital supporters.

After Hours at Children's South
The Children's South After Hours clinic is a referral clinic. We ARE NOT
A WALK-IN CLINIC. After Hours does not take the place of the Primary
Care Pediatrician (PCP). We require a referral from either the PCP’s
office OR from a PHIL nurse (Pediatric Health Information Line) who
will notify the PCPs that a patient was referred to After Hours.
The clinic sees patients as follows:
1. Patient is unable to see the regular physician during the day
2. Patient has a minor emergency during hours
when the physician’s office is closed
3. PCP or PHIL nurse calls or faxes referral to After Hours.
4. Parent makes an appointment, as long as the PCP has been
contacted and the referral is on its way.
5. Patients who require more emergent or advanced care or require
admission to the hospital will be transferred to Children's
Russell Campus downtown.

After Hours at Children's South continued...
Tips for the Primary Care Office:
Scenario #1:
Doctor’s office is open, however all appointments are booked.
Solution:
Explain to parent that After Hours Clinic accepts appointments
from 5–9:30, Monday-Friday, and 12–7:30, Saturday and Sunday.
Office nurse calls or faxes referral.
Parent calls and requests appointment time.
Scenario #2:
Doctor’s office is closed, but is contracted with PHIL to take calls.
Solution:
Parent leaves a message with PHIL and an on-call nurse
calls parent back.
PHIL nurse notifies After Hours Clinic that patient will be coming in and
sends referral.
Parent calls to request appointment time.
Scenario #3:
Doctor’s office is open, but child’s condition
is urgent or needs a higher level of care.
Solution:
Send parent/child to the

The Children's of Alabama Palliative
and Supportive Care Team is
a specially trained interdisciplinary
team that provides care for
children and their families with
complex, chronic or lifethreatening illnesses. We are
focused on providing patients relief
from pain, symptoms (for example,
shortness of breath or nausea) and
the stress of serious illness – whatever
the diagnosis.
Palliative and
Supportive Care
Our team includes doctors, nurses and other
specialists (pastoral care, psychology, social work,
child life and physical therapy) who partner
with the patient’s physicians to provide an extra
layer of support. The goal of the Palliative and
Supportive Care Team is to improve the quality
of life for both the patient and family.
Palliative and
Supportive
Care
Palliative and supportive care is appropriate at any
age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be
provided together with curative treatment. Our
interdisciplinary team works in collaboration with
the primary team to address physical, emotional,
psychological, practical and spiritual issues which
may contribute to suffering or interfere with
healing. We strive to make every day better for our
patients and their families, to promote healing,
comfort and hope, no matter what the outcome
may be.
