Hospitalists

A hospitalist is a doctor who cares specifically for hospitalized patients.  They do not have an office practice.  In a sense, they assume the role of a primary care doctor while you are in the hospital.  Our Board Certified Hospitalists are very experienced in the unique needs of the hospitalized patient.  Beginning at admission, hospitalists communicate closely with your primary care physician and at discharge, send important medical information about your hospital stay and discharge plan to your doctor.  When you leave the hospital, your primary care physician will resume responsibility for your medical care. 

Because hospitalists don’t have a private practice, they are devoted to the care of hospitalized patients 24 hours a day.  Their presence in the hospital helps them to be accessible to your family.
