Hospitalist Service

What is a hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a fully qualified medical doctor employed by a hospital to treat patients while they are hospitalized. These may be patients without a primary care physician or patients whose primary care doctors have agreed that their care be assigned to a hospitalist.

Hospitalists copy reports and diagnoses to your primary care physician and consult with them by phone, fax or e-mail as needed to determine the most appropriate care for you.

An Overview

Hospitalist physicians are on site 24/7.

  • The hospitalist service accepts direct admissions, transfers and patients requiring the consulting services of an internist.
  • Upon discharge, patients are referred to their primary care physician for continued care.
  • Patient and referring physician satisfaction surveys are conducted quarterly to improve our service.

The Hospitalist Team

Our team consists of ten physicians and 5 advanced practice professionals.

The Communication Process

Referring physicians automatically receive an admission notification and a discharge summary.

Referring physicians may request additional communication from the hospitalist team throughout the patient’s stay and may specify their preference of specialist consultants for their patients.
