Your primary care doctor has partnered with our team of hospital physicians,
called hospitalists, who will direct your medical needs while in the hospital.
The hospitalist is a physician, usually specializing in Intenal Medicine,
who cares for hospital patients exclusively. Campbell County Health employs
a team of hospitalists to care for you. Patients under the care of a hospitalist
appreciate the immediate and around-the-clock access to a doctor.
Patients in the hospital are seen daily by the hospitalist, who will order
all tests, consult with specialists if needed, prescribe medicine, communicate
with nurses and therapists and monitor care.
The hospitalist ensures that important information about the patient's
condition is relayed to the primary care doctor. When the patient is discharged,
the hospitalist will visit with the primary care doctor, who provides
any follow-up care.
