When a patient is admitted to our hospital, we want to ensure coordinated medical attention from multiple healthcare professionals. From your nurses to your housekeepers, our goal is to make every experience exceptional. Our motto is “Every Patient, Every Time.”
To help patients receive seamless medical care during their stay, we feature a hospitalist program for our inpatient care, fully backed by many of our primary care physicians and specialists.
Our hospitalists are a group of board certified doctors who will be your go-to physician while you are in our care. The hospitalists are available 24/7 to monitor your condition, discuss medication management, or complete your discharge paperwork.
Most hospitals across the nation have adopted a hospitalist program. It became popular as primary care practices became busier, and providers no longer had time to make rounds in local hospitals. Having the program available creates a continuity of care that doesn’t disrupt the patient’s stay.
Most importantly, our hospitalists strive to provide seamless communication with your primary care physician (PCP) or other specialists.
Upon discharge, your PCP will provide any necessary follow-up. If you don’t have a primary care doctor, we can help assign one to you for post-discharge care.
To find a physician, please call our dedicated line: 508-765-3145
Hospitalists are part of a growing national trend that presents a win-win situation for you and your PCP. You receive the care you deserve in a timely fashion, while maintaining your doctor on an outpatient basis for follow-up care.
