Primary care physicians choose hospital-based physicians, or hospitalists, to manage the care of their patients hospitalized at United Regional.  Hospitalists are specialists in inpatient medicine – they are experts in caring for medically complex patients in the inpatient setting. They help ensure safe and high quality care for the patients we serve.

Hospitalists are on-site at United Regional 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Since they are hospital-based, your hospitalist can rapidly coordinate your medical care and respond quickly to any changes in your condition.


What does a hospitalist do?

A hospitalist is involved in every aspect of your hospital stay, including:

  • Assessing and treating your medical condition
  • Coordinating and providing medical care, which may include working with medical and surgical consultants, physical and occupational therapists, discharge planners, dietitians, and clergy
  • Ordering laboratory, x-ray and other diagnostic testing
  • Providing regular care updates to you and your family
  • Communicating frequently with your primary care physician regarding care and progress
  • Coordinating discharge planning with physicians and hospital staff
  • Transitioning you back to your primary care physician following hospitalization

If you have any additional questions, please discuss these with your physician.
