Hospital Medicine in Lake City

If you are admitted as a patient to our hospital, you may be cared for by one or more hospitalists during your stay.

What is a hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in caring for patients while they are in the hospital. Our hospitalists are board certified in internal medicine or family medicine. Hospitalists do not see patients outside the hospital so they are able to give their complete attention to their hospitalized patients. A hospitalist is available 24/7 to provide care to patients in the hospital.

What are the benefits of being cared for by a hospitalist?

  • Hospitalists work only in the hospital and are available, on-site, 24 hours-a-day.
  • Hospitalists are easily accessible in emergencies or when questions arise.
  • Hospitalists are familiar with our hospital processes and procedures. This allows them to easily order tests, consult other specialists and adjust treatments. 

How does the hospitalist work with my doctor?

When you are admitted to the hospital, your primary care provider will transfer the management of your care to the hospitalist team. The hospitalist and your provider will communicate as needed throughout your stay. Upon discharge, your primary care provider will be given a summary of your stay in the hospital, and your care will return to your primary care provider.
