Partners

While our hospitalists are employed by our private practice hospitalist group, they serve integral roles that support the facility's operational and clinical goals. They are responsible for inpatient rounds, medical and surgical admissions and discharges, surgical co-management, ICU care with intensivists, supervision of mid-level providers, and management of patients.
