Hospital Medicine

Hospitalists coordinate all aspects of your treatment efficiently, from admission through discharge. Our hospital medicine staff doctors and medical residents keep your primary care physician and your family members updated on your status. They work closely with residents, nurses and medical technicians, and help train medical students. Our hospitalists also coordinate with appropriate post-discharge care services, including home health, rehabilitation and home IV infusion services as needed.
