A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in caring for patients in the hospital. These doctors usually do not have an outpatient office practice. They represent your family doctor while you are hospitalized. A hospitalist is an expert with the diagnosis and treatment of the serious problems faced in the hospital. Most hospitalists are general internal medicine physicians, family practice physicians or pediatricians. Some hospitalists are trained as specialists in pulmonary/critical care medicine, cardiology, or other subspecialties.
The WellSpan Hospitalists serve patients at WellSpan Gettysburg and WellSpan York Hospitals. They are members of the WellSpan Medical Group. They provide inpatient care coverage for over 60 of the local primary care physicians in the York-Adams region. All of the care providers of the WellSpan Hospitalists are board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
Most leading hospitals across the nation now benefit from hospitalist physicians. Here are some of the advantages:
Hospitalists talk to primary care physicians on a frequent basis. At the time of your admission to the hospital, your primary care physician calls the hospitalist and informs him or her of your condition and send over records to provide as much information as possible about your illness. During the course of your hospitalization, your hospitalist and primary care physician may talk further regarding your treatment. And at discharge your hospitalist will communicate with your primary care physician to discuss your further treatment needs, help arrange follow-up, and prescribe the necessary medications, and he or she will send your hospital records to your primary care physician.
