Memorial Health Hospitalists are internal medicine or family medicine physicians who specialize in caring for people in the hospital. They do not have outpatient practices. The Memorial Health Hospitalists team also includes nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and a clinical support team.
If your primary care doctor requests it, your hospitalist will take charge of your hospital care. He or she will regularly update your primary care doctor about your health, progress, and any significant findings. Your hospitalist will work with your primary care doctor to prepare a treatment plan at the time of admission. When you leave the hospital, your hospitalist will inform your primary care doctor of any further treatment needs, follow-up care, and necessary prescriptions. For more information or to refer a patient for hospitalist care, call 912-350-1316.
