The Hospitalist Program
Providing Around-the-Clock Care
The NVRH Hospitalist Program provides an inpatient coverage system that allows admitted patients continuous access to a doctor 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your regular doctor will also receive reports about your condition and may advise on your care as needed. The Hospitalist may be involved with your post-surgical care as well if your surgeon requests a consult.
Benefits to the Hospitalist Program:
- The Hospitalist is available to respond to emergent, urgent, and routine issues on the medical floor and the ICU.
- The Hospitalist has more flexibility to meet with patients and their families.
- The Hospitalist is available to admit and discharge patients quickly and efficiently.
- There is improved access to your primary care doctor in the medical offices because your provider’s time is not divided between hospital and office patients.
