Pacific Inpatient Physicians

What is a Hospitalist?

Sometimes called an “inpatient physician,”a hospitalist is a physician who focuses exclusively on the care of hospitalized patients. Our team of hospitalist physicians may be caring for you or your family member at the request of your primary care physician or because you do not have a primary care physician.

Because we focus exclusively on hospital care, our physicians have expert knowledge of all hospital departments and specialists. This will help you to get the proper treatment quickly and effectively. We are available throughout the day to follow up on test results and adjust the care plan as needed.

Your primary care physician will be notified at the time of your admission and discharge. They will have access to your hospital records if they are affiliated with the hospital. Otherwise, you may request that your records be forwarded to them after discharge. If you do not have a primary care physician, our team will assist you in arranging follow up care.

If you have questions or concerns while you are in the hospital, please let your nurse or nursing assistant know and they will notify your hospitalist.
