What does a Hospitalist do?
Hospitalists are a team of doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners whose primary focus is general medical care of hospitalized patients.
Why do I need a Hospitalist?
A Hospitalist’s primary purpose is to extend the level of care that your Primary Care Provider delivers. When you are in the hospital, your Hospitalist team provides you top-level care while keeping your primary care provider continually apprised of your condition.
What about my care after I’m discharged from the hospital?
Memorial Healthcare Hospitalists are committed to ensuring a smooth transition between your primary care provider and the care received during your hospital stay. Once you are discharged, we update your primary care provider on your condition, including a summary of lab work, any medications, and instructions you need to follow at home.
What if I have questions after my discharge?
If you have questions after your stay at Memorial Healthcare, please call (989) 720-CARE (2273) and ask to speak with the hospitalist office.
