Hospitalists are physicians who care for patients while they are in the hospital.
Because the hospitalists are available 24/7, they are right there to order tests and receive the results, coordinate with specialists and make treatment decisions.
They are also available to their patients at any time, eliminating the need to wait for a visit during morning or evening rounds.
The hospitalists keep the patient's primary care provider informed of the patient's condition, and provide a care plan for discharge that include any necessary follow-up care, home care, therapy or assistance from social services.
EvergreenHealth's hospitalist team include physicians from these specialties:
EvergreenHealth's pediatric hospitalists are provided by Seattle Children's.
