What is a Hospitalist?

Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in caring for patients in the hospital and who normally do not have an outpatient practice. They manage all aspects of a patient’s medical treatment from the time of admission until discharge, working collaboratively with the patient’s primary care physician. They only see patients in the hospital.

Who is cared for by a Hospitalist?


Hospitalists provide many benefits to your doctor.

• For Your Doctor

Good communication is vital to the success of any Hospitalist Program. Your primary care physician will receive a copy of the hospital Discharge Summary, which summarizes your hospital stay. By coordinating your care in the hospital, we are able to allow your primary care physician more time to treat and care for his or her office-based patients.

• For You

Hospitalists are available to you and your family throughout the day and night while you are in the hospital. A member of our Hospitalist team is available around the clock. This facilitates communication as well as allows us to follow-up and act upon test results and consultations as they happen.

What are the advantages of being cared for by a Hospitalist?


Ask For Help | Always Ask Questions.

The next time you or a loved one is admitted to WCA Hospital and under the care of a Hospitalist, talk to the Hospitalist. Ask how to contact a Hospitalist and what would be the best times to do so. Ask the Hospitalist how long he or she will be on duty. Review any medical lists with the Hospitalist.
