Welcome to the Hospital Medicine department.
The Department of Hospital Medicine is a team of Physicians within the Department of Internal Medicine who specialize in taking care of hospitalized patients. If you are hospitalized, it is likely that you will be under the direct care of Hospital Medicine physician or be seen by one in consultation during your hospitalization or visit to the Emergency Department. If necessary during the course of your hospitalization, we work closely with your primary physician and sub-specialist physicians ( such as Cardiology, Nephrology and Oncology) to coordinate and direct your overall care. We also work as a team and you maybe seen by different members of our group at different times during your hospital course. Since we provide 24 hour coverage in the hospital, one member of our group may admit you to the hospital from the Emergency Department and then another member may take over your care in the morning. Aside from seeing different members of our group, you may also see resident physicians and medical students still in training. These bright and enthusiastic team members are always under the supervision of a staff Physician and are part of the larger team dedicated to your care.
We know that being hospitalized can be stressful for you and your family. We are committed to helping this experience be as positive as possible, and want to work with you to ensure you get the best and most appropriate care. If you or your family has questions about your care during your hospitalization, please let us know.
