Hospitalists

What is a Hospitalist?

Hospital-medicine doctors’, or a hospitalist’s, role in hospitals is to manage the care of the patient while the patient is in the hospital. Full-time hospitalists generally do not have private practices and do not continue to care for patients once they are discharged from the hospital. There are about 30,000 hospitalist physicians working in United States hospitals. Hospitalists manage the acute care of patients while patients are in the hospital in about 70 percent of all U.S. hospitals. Most hospitalists are internal-medicine physicians who are acute, primary-care specialists.

Purpose

Hospitalists manage the acute care of patients within the hospital. In doing so, hospitalists facilitate and expedite the care of patients within the hospital setting. Hospitalists ensure patients’ needs are met in a timely manner. Because hospitalists are on duty and on hospital premises 24 hours a day, they are fully available to patients from admission to discharge. Because the hospitalist is on site, medical complications are reduced, length of stay is reduced, and the cost of providing care is reduced.

How it Works at Lodi Memorial Hospital

Physicians serving as hospitalists manage the care of all unassigned patients who are admitted through the hospital’s emergency department. They may also manage the care of patients whose regular doctors have asked the hospitalist to manage the care of their patients while their patients are in the hospital.
