The Hospital Medicine Program at CMC provides hospitalized patients with timely access to physician care throughout their hospital stay. A hospitalist is a physician who focuses on caring for patients during their hospitalization only. These clinicians manage patients and coordinate specialists, as needed, throughout their entire hospital stay, from admission until discharge when a patient's care is resumed by their primary care provider. Hospitalists have completed training emphasizing the care of acutely ill patients.
Our hospitalists work closely as a team, so you may see more than one during your stay. A dedicated team of hospitalists means fewer interruptions in your care, less complications and round-the-clock physician availability. At the time of discharge, hospitalists work with each patient on a suitable plan for their future health care needs.
