What is a Hospitalist?
A hospitalist is a doctor, board certified in the field of internal medicine, who sees patients only at the hospital. This enables them to focus exclusively on you and your illness. Our hospitalist service also has board certified nurse practitioners trained in managing the care of hospitalized patients. Because hospitalists provide care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it is likely that you will see more than one hospitalist during your stay.

- Manage your treatment at the hospital
- Coordinate and consult with specialists
- Closely monitor your progress
- Stay in close contact with you, your family and your doctor
