Hospitalist Program

A hospitalist is a doctor who specializes in caring for patients who have been admitted to the hospital.

What does a hospitalist do for you?

By using a dedicated team of hospitalists while you are a patient with us, the delivery of hospital care you receive is enhanced. This means fewer interruptions for you, less complications and a doctor available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Hospitalist Team will:
  • Assess and treat your medical condition.
  • Keep your regular physician informed of your hospital progress.
  • Coordinate your care, including all diagnostic tests such as x-rays, blood tests or other procedures.
  • Make arrangements for any prescriptions you may need upon discharge.
  • Arrange any specialty care, therapy or consults with other providers.
  • Be available to you and your family to provide information and answer questions.
