Physician Relations

Our Physician Relations team develops and maintains positive relationships with community healthcare providers and delivers information about services and resources at Children’s National. 

Liaisons provide updates on programs, services, and events through regular visits with referring physicians and their office staff. Liaisons respond to concerns, actively seek feedback from staff, and work with practices in the community to ensure that referral processes are convenient and operating well. Our team offers:

  • One point of contact for any referring provider to leadership at Children’s National
  • Information on new programs, services, and specialists
  • Referral assistance

For further information regarding physician relations or practices in Northern Virginia and outside our service area, call 202-476-4418. Our office is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. If you receive voicemail, we are either on the other line or visiting other practices and will guarantee a call back within 24 hours.
