Hospitalists at Methodist Hospital
Specialized physicians coordinating hospital care with your doctor — getting you home faster.
Unlike a traditional physician, a hospitalist is a specialist that focusses on the care and treatment of a hospitalized patient. Our hospitalists coordinate with your physician to ensure that you and your family get the best care while in the hospital.
The team approach
As a part of your health care team, a hospitalist will work with your physician to monitor your condition, order tests and make treatment decisions that will help you get well faster. Hospitalists are available in the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The benefit to you
Hospitalists are located at the hospital. This allows the hospitalist to more quickly respond to questions from you or a family member. A hospitalist can recognize and react quickly to any change in the condition of you or your loved one.
