Steve Bii

Expanding Access to Exceptional Pediatric Care

Pediatrician Dr. Steve Bii knows some of his patients are nervous the first time they meet with him at the doctor’s office.

He’s there to reassure those young patients — to make them smile and ease anxieties — whether it’s their first time going to the doctor, or they’ve come to his office to feel better.

“My goal is that all children are healthy, that they are able to participate, and they are able to go to school,” he said.

In addition to being a child’s primary care physician, he also serves as a resource for families as they have questions about everything from acute illness to immunizations to setting children up for success as adults.

“When you are providing care to children, you are providing support to them over their lifetime…You’re providing them with resources that will allow them to be a successful adult.”

Pediatric Hospitalist Program

The goal of the Pediatric Hospitalist Program is to provide around the clock, seamless, compassionate care for your infant or child in the following areas:

  • A pediatric IV team
  • Play and age-appropriate communication to reduce anxiety and promote a sense of well-being
  • Activities for children to distract from the stress of the hospital

Pediatric Hospitalists offer the following support:

  • Manage care teams
  • Keep families involved in the care planning process
  • Coordinate with specialists
  • Schedule tests and prescribe medication
  • Communicate with primary care physicians and pediatricians
  • Oversee the care of infants in our Family Birth Center

During your child’s stay, our hospitalists will be in constant communication, coordinating care with your primary care physician or pediatrician, including physicians at Palouse Pediatrics. Our partnerships with Kootenai Health and Providence Healthcare for neonatology and pediatric intensive care provide for another level of integrated service.

Frequently asked questions

If your child is a patient in the hospital, they might be seen by a Pediatric Hospitalist—a specially-trained doctor that works with children. They care for kids throughout the hospital, including pediatrics, labor and delivery, newborn care, surgery, critical care  and the emergency department.

Hospitalists work with everyone involved in your child’s care, including their pediatrician and other providers. If there is a significant change in your child’s condition, a hospitalist will update your pediatrician or primary care provider.

When your child leaves the hospital, a pediatric hospitalist will give your pediatrician or primary care provider an overview of your child’s hospital stay and detailed instructions for any follow-up.

Pediatric hospitalists are doctors who have had at least four years of medical school and three years of residency training, including training in pediatrics.

Gritman Pediatric Hospitalists also have the following certifications:

  • Pediatric and neonatal emergency stabilization and care
  • STABLE–Management of critical neonatal complications
  • NRP–Neonatal Resuscitation Program
