Hospital Medicine is an expanding area of general internal medicine practiced by Hospitalists, who are medical physicians specializing in the care of hospitalized patients. They are on site at the hospital seven days a week, 24 hours a day to provide you with immediate and ongoing care.
At UHS, the Hospital Medicine Division is committed to medicine of the highest order. Hospitalists work in conjunction with medical residents, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to provide comprehensive medical assessments and treatments to patients with a variety of medical conditions. They collaborate with specialized needs. They coordinate care with outpatient primary care physicians and other providers to create safe and efficient transitions to other care settings.
The Hospital Medicine Division currently has 18 full-time Hospitalists who make more than 36,000 visits annually to patients at UHS.
