What is a Hospitalist?
We are medical doctors who specialize in the care of hospitalized patients. Our team includes doctors trained in internal medicine or family practice medicine. Because our doctors focus on patients who are hospitalized and very familiar with the hospital environment, we provide personalized care tailored to your unique needs and are available 24 hours a day. We are committed to providing you with quality care during your stay at any of our Centura Health hospitals.
While You're Hospitalized
We partner with your primary care doctor as well as other medical specialists involved in your care during your hospital stay. Because we practice within the hospital, we can promptly follow up on diagnostic tests and adjust your treatment as necessary. We are on-site and easy to reach in case of an emergency and available to personally talk to you and your family about your care.
When You're Discharged
When you are discharged from the hospital, your primary care doctor will resume management of your medical care. We will notify your doctor's office and send a summary of your stay at the hospital to your doctor.
