Our Hospitalists

Specialized Care while You’re in the Hospital

A hospitalist is an internal medicine physician who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients. Because hospitalists spend most or all of their workday in the hospital, they can typically be at the bedside more quickly than a doctor who works in an outpatient office or clinic setting.

Hospitalists’ prompt availability can provide important benefits as your needs change during your stay. Hospitalists are available around the clock to provide high-quality, personalized care when you need it. From your admission through discharge, they may order needed tests and track results; prescribe medications or medical procedures; continuously update treatment based on any changes in your condition; and help transition you safely to other levels of care as needed. In addition, they coordinate the care that may be needed from a variety of specialists during your stay. Hospitals have been proven to provide better patient results
