Hospitalist Care Clinical Services

Medicine Service

The Medicine Service is the largest of the clinical services offered by the Hospitalist Care Program. The staff's primary responsibility is managing the clinical problems of the acutely ill requiring hospitalization. The service is staffed by five teams, four of which are hospitalist-driven. These four teams consist of both resident/medical student staffed teams and non-resident attended directed teams supported by nurses and nurse practitioners. The Medicine Service is staffed 24/7. The service receives patients in the hospital from either a direct admission from the referring community or a transfer from another treating service inside the hospital including those from the emergency treatment center.
