Just like a cardiologist is a physician who specializes in the heart and a neurologist specializes in the brain, a hospitalist is a physician who specializes in hospital medicine. They provide care to patients who are hospitalized with medical illnesses.

Benefits of a hospitalist:

  • A provider is available in the hospital throughout the day to respond to changing conditions or answer questions.
  • A hospitalist can concentrate on the needs of inpatients without balancing a clinic or surgery schedule.
  • A hospitalist may be more aware of new inpatient treatments and therapies and can coordinate the care of needed specialists more efficiently.
  • Hospitalists are always available to nursing staff, which promotes better communication among the care team members.
  • There are fewer transfers of care between covering providers.

If you have any questions about the hospitalist program, please call Inpatient Care Services at 920-320-3474.
