Our 24/7 Hospitalist Program

The doctor is always in at Holy Spirit Hospital, thanks to our established Hospitalist Program.

 

Hospitalists are physicians who oversee your care, from the moment you arrive in the hospital until you are discharged to your primary care physician. Hospitalist programs in hospitals across the nation are delivering improved quality-of-care and enhanced satisfaction.

Because they are available around the clock, hospitalists collaborate closely with the nursing staff and ancillary departments and give problems the quick attention they require. They are experts in hospital medicine and provide daily updates, including plan of care and condition, to patients and their families.

Benefits of our Hospitalist Program include:

  • Continuous provider access
  • Immediate response by a hospitalist to sudden changes in patient condition
  • Expedited access, via the hospitalist, to diagnostic and therapeutic intervention and specialty services
  • An increased likelihood of leaving the hospital earlier and with fewer complications

Hospitalists also effectively communicate with your primary care physician, providing both written updates throughout your stay and a full summary when you are discharged.
