The Hospitalist’s Role in Your Care

A Hospitalist is a physician who specializes in your care during your stay in the hospital. The Hospitalist Team manages every aspect of your care, including treatments, specialists and other departments in the hospital.

Hospitalists provide 24-hour coverage from the moment you are admitted. While supervising your treatment, a Hospitalist will stay in close touch with you, your family and your primary care physician. Our Hospitalists are board certified, and the Hospitalist Program is another benefit to ensure you receive the high quality care you deserve during your stay.

After Discharge

When you are discharged, a Hospitalist will contact your primary care physician with a comprehensive report, and a written copy will be added to your records. Your primary physician will then continue the management of your care.

Benefits of Hospitalists

• Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from the moment you are admitted until you are discharged.
• Available for emergencies and treatment concerns.
• Can see you more than once a day, if necessary.
• Knows hospital resources very well.
• Can quickly assess test results and respond with treatment changes.
• Always nearby to answer questions from you or your family.
• Frees your primary physician to concentrate on patients who come for office visits.

How the Hospitalist Program Works

The Hospitalist Program is a continuation of your primary physician’s care. CRH has agreements with many physicians in Columbus and beyond to care for patients admitted to the hospital.

Once you are admitted to the hospital, your primary physician reviews your case with a Hospitalist and provides any necessary records. While you are in the hospital, the Hospitalist Team manages your care and consults with your primary physician as needed. When you are discharged, a Hospitalist provides a detailed report, and follows up with a written report to be kept as part of your comprehensive healthcare file. Your primary physician will then continue your treatment.

Contacting Your Hospitalist

The best way to contact your Hospitalist about concerns or treatment is through your nurse, who will contact the CRH Hospitalist Team.
