Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is a hospitalist and who does a hospitalist treat?
A hospitalist is a medical provider who cares for patients while they are in the hospital. We work closely with patients, families, specialists, nurses, and other hospital professionals to care for their patients. Hospitalists coordinate care with outpatient providers to ensure smooth transitions into and out of the hospital.
