Advantages of Hospitalist Care

Hospitalists practice only in the hospital, which gives them special insight into the care of inpatients and also makes them readily available to patients around the clock. They can be at your bedside within minutes and can see you or your family when needed.


Your hospitalist is familiar with all the specialists and departments in the hospital, and will assist you through a smooth and speedy recovery process by following up on test results and adjusting your treatments as indicated.


Hospitalists also help your personal physician be more available to you. Because hospitalists are in the hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, your doctor can be more focused on providing care in his or her office with fewer delays and interruptions. Your primary doctor will be able to devote more office time to keeping you and your family healthy
