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.
INTEGRIS hospitalists believe high-quality care requires providing safe, timely, effective, evidence-based, efficient patient centered care. Please ask questions, keep follow-up appointments and take only those medicines outlined in your discharge papers. If questions arise after your hospitalist has made rounds, ask your nurse to relay the question to the doctor. If you have questions or concerns within 48 hours of getting home, contact your primary care physician.
