Hospitalists are physicians who are specially trained in the care of the hospitalized patient. They are responsible for managing patient care and treatment on a daily basis from the time a patient is admitted to the hospital until they are discharged.
Hospitalists at TriStar facilities work as a team with your physician and other specialists to ensure a seamless continuum of care both during your stay in the hospital and when you return to the care of the your physician after discharge.
The hospitalists will see you daily and be in charge of your care while you are a hospital patient. They will attend to any special needs or emergencies that may arise and will consult with other specialists as needed to ensure you receive the appropriate care for your illness or injury.
What happens when it is time to go home?
The hospitalists work closely with the team of case managers, therapists, pharmacists and community resources to ensure the most appropriate decisions are made with regard to your continued care. After discharge you will return to your primary care physician for your follow up care.
