Why Hospitalists Care for Me

As per your primary care physician request, we are in charge of your care during your hospital stay. You have the benefit of being seen by doctors expert in hospital medicine who are physically present in the hospital all day.

This enables your PMD to be more available to you when in the office, rather than trying to go back and forth between seeing patients in the hospital and the office.

How a Hospitalist Practice Works

- Daily rounds and treatment plans
- Consults other doctors, when needed, and coordinates care
- Available to you and your family to answer all questions and discuss your care

Hospitalists do not have an office and you would not have a follow-up appointment with them after your discharge.

You will need to follow-up with your primary care doctor.

The Relationship Between Hospitalists and Primary Care Doctors:

Your primary care doctor will be notified of your admission and initial evaluation will be sent to your PMD within 24 hours. We talk to your PMD on your day of discharge and discuss your hospital course and follow up treatment plans. At the time of discharge your PMD gets copies of your records.
