We also provide hospitalist care. A hospitalist is an internal medicine doctor who specializes in inpatient medical care. These hospital-based physicians bring an increased level of experience and training to assure you receive expert care in a pleasant environment. Typically, your family doctor will have a hospitalist care for you while you are receiving inpatient treatment. Once treatment is complete, the hospitalist will help you transition back to your family doctor.
If you do not have a primary care physician, the hospitalist can care for you during your stay. Once you are discharged from the hospital, the hospitalist can refer you to a primary care physician for further treatments. For more information about our hospitalist program, please call 919-497-5219.
Our hospitalists serve you in a variety of ways, including:
Assess and treat your medical condition throughout your stay
Coordinate your hospital care including diagnostic tests such as x-rays, blood tests or other procedures
Arrange specialty care including therapy or consults with other specialists
Transition your medical care back to your physician who will resume responsibility after discharge
