Hospitalists: Your in-hospital specialists

The Campbell County Health hospitalist program was created in 2008 to provide patients with immediate, round-the-clock access to a healthcare provider who works exclusively in Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming.

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.

Hospitalists who work at CCMH include:

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 at www.cchwyo.org/findadoc.
