What is a hospitalist?

Hospitalists are doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who specialize in providing care for hospitalized patients.

Most primary care physicians no longer visit patients in the hospital, so they entrust their patient’s care to a hospitalist. Hospitalists also care for patients who do not have a primary care provider. They partner with surgeons and other specialists to ensure your general medical needs are met.

Hospitalists work solely in the hospital and do not run a traditional clinical practice. This allows them to be more available to patients and their families throughout their stay in the hospital. Because their specialty is hospital-based care, a hospitalist is able to stay current with the standards of care in a hospital setting. Hospitalists are able to focus their ongoing education on the newest trends in hospital care. This allows them to deliver up-to-date, high-quality care.
