Hospitalists are physicians specializing in caring for hospitalized patients. They partner with your doctor to provide your hospital care. Your doctor communicates vital information to the hospitalist at admission and the hospitalist coordinates your care and keeps your doctor informed of your condition and progress. Hospitalists also care for patients admitted through the emergency department who do not have a physician.
