What is a "Hospitalist?"

Hospitalists are typically Internal Medicine physicians and physician assistants who provide quality medical treatment to patients who are hospitalized. Our Hospitalists do not maintain a clinic practice; their time is devoted solely to caring for hospitalized patients.

A Hospitalist will care for you if you are admitted to North Memorial Medical Center. Hospitalists will manage your care during your hospitalization. Our hospitalists are very familiar with the hospital, its systems and its functions and are dedicated to providing quality care to our hospitalized patients. Your hospitalist will coordinate care with your primary care provider at North Clinic and will keep your primary provider updated on your progress.
