What is a Hospitalist?
Hospitalists are doctors who devote their medical practice to caring for people in the hospital. Hospitalists are most often internal medicine (adult health) specialists, but can also be family practitioners or other medical specialists. They do not see patients outside of the hospital.
Hospitalists care for patients referred to them by physicians with clinic practices. Emergency department physicians can also refer patients to a Hospitalist when the patient does not have a primary care physician.
The Hospitalist team works with the patient’s primary care doctor to coordinate admission to the hospital and the continuing care needed after they are discharged. This partnership is designed to provide focused, specialized care to shorten the length of the hospital stay and to return the patient to their personal physician for recovery care.
