Randall Children's Co-Management and Referral Guidelines

Randall Children’s Hospital is dedicated to working collaboratively with community providers to establish practices and protocols that will allow us to consistently deliver the highest quality of care possible to our pediatric patients. The Co-Management and Referral Guidelines on this page have been developed by a team of Randall Children’s sub-specialists with input and guidance from the local pediatric community. These tools are designed to address the evaluation and management of a variety of conditions commonly seen in our shared patients, with the goal of supporting community providers in the delivery of high-quality care in the pediatric or primary care setting. These materials also outline when, how and under what conditions community providers should consider making a referral to Randall Children’s Hospital or our specialty clinics.
