During your hospital stay, your medical care may be provided by a doctor called a Hospitalist. A Hospitalist is a contracted physician or advanced practice provider who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients. The hospitalist will be in close contact with your admitting physician or primary care physician during your hospital stay. They will keep them informed about your treatment and care. Your regular doctor may still come by to check on you. They can still be involved in your care. All of our Hospitalists will provide the highest level of care.
