Hospital-based physicians are board-certified/ eligible, highly qualified, experienced and considered specialists in hospital medicine. They are selected specifically for their ability to provide quality and compassionate patient care. Our Hospitalists are all general internal medicine physicians.
- The hospitalist physician will direct your care, obtain consultations with subspecialist doctors when needed, monitor test results, and quickly respond to changes in your condition. He or she will also discuss treatment options with you, answer all of your questions, and inform your primary care physician.
- Hospitalists work together as a TEAM to provide safe, efficient, and compassionate care to all our patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Because this would be impossible for one person to accomplish alone, you may be cared for by more than one hospitalist during your stay. We try very hard however, to keep patient care continuity intact.
- Communication with your Primary Care Physician will occur throughout your hospital admission. Your PCP will be notified when you have been admitted to the hospital. At discharge, a detailed summary of your course and future care plan will be sent to your PCP.
