Hospitalists are doctors who specialize in caring for patients in the hospital. They serve as attending physicians and provide consultations on behalf of other specialists.
By being present in the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week, our team of hospitalists can:
Hospitalists always see unstable patients first, followed by patients who are ready to be discharged. They then visit the remainder of their patients. Hospitalists always see each patient daily. They make additional visits as needed to discuss important test results.
Hospitalists are available in person or by telephone during the day. A night hospitalist is available if your question or concern cannot wait until your regular hospitalist is available the next day.
Your primary care physician is notified at the time of your admission, of any significant changes in your condition while in the hospital, and on the day you are discharged. The hospitalist provides your primary care physician with a detailed summary of your hospital course, including tests results, consultations with other physicians and your discharge medication list. They also ensure timely follow up appointments with your primary care physician and inform him or her of any additional tests needed when you visit the clinic.
If you have questions or concerns, you should contact your primary care physician. If you have an emergency, please call 911 or report to the nearest emergency room.
