Richard Vo, MD

About Richard

Dr. Richard Vo attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch, and completed his residency in Pediatrics at the University of South Dakota. He heard of the opportunity at CCH from fellow pediatrician Dr. Francesca McCaffrey, who he met in his residency program at Sanford Health. One of the reasons he chose CCH was his level of trust in his colleagues on the medical staff.

Dr. Vo likes the intimacy of the Maternal Child unit and considers it his “little family”. As a pediatric hospitalist in a rural healthcare setting, CCH gives him the opportunity to do a little bit of everything, from neonatal intensive care to general pediatrics.

When he’s not practicing, Dr. Vo and his wife Ella love to travel both nationally and internationally, and plan on taking a backpacking trip to Spain.

The CCH hospitalist program was created in 2008 to provide patients with immediate, round-the-clock access to a healthcare provider who works exclusively in the hospital. Instead of specializing in caring for a specific disease such as a cardiologist or oncologist does, a hospitalist is trained to take care of you during your entire hospital stay. Hospitalists work closely with other key people in the hospital, such as nurses, pharmacists, discharge planners and clergy.

Hospitalist medicine is the fastest growing medical specialty in the U.S.

CCH has hospitalists who care for both adult and pediatric patients.

Today – there are over 52,000 practicing hospitalists.

How does the hospitalist know about me?
The hospitalist uses the medical record to review your medical history. They can also communicate with your primary care physician or clinic to request any information they feel is important in taking care of you while in the hospital.

What happens if I need a specialist?
Because hospitalists are available 24/7 and they know every specialist and department in the hospital, they will be sure to get you the specialized care you need.

What happens after I am discharged?
Patients return to their established primary care provider for follow-up care. If you do not have a primary care provider, we can help you find one.
