Wing Memorial Hospital hospitalists - specialists in hospital
medicine - work closely with a hospitalized patient and his/her personal
physician to coordinate and provide care.
The hospitalist chooses medical tests or evaluations, interprets test
results and works with the patient's physician to make essential
decisions about the treatment plan. The hospitalist is also responsible
for calling in other specialists for medical consults or to discuss
further treatment options.
Because hospitalists are at Wing Memorial Hospital 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, they are available to see patients and answer
questions as needed.
In short, the hospitalists and the patient's personal physician work
as a team to help the patient through a continuum of care that includes
easy admission, a comfortable and compassionate hospital stay, and as
timely a discharge as possible.
