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.
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.
