Acute Hospital Care of Adults From Our Hospitalist Service

The hospitalist group within the Division of General Medicine provides comprehensive in-hospital care for patients admitted to the internal medicine service at University Hospital. This group specializes in all aspects of inpatient internal medicine and is continuously available to patients and their families during hospitalization. The group also provides consultation throughout the hospital on issues such as perioperative management, anticoagulation care, and diabetes management.

Our greatest priority as a group is providing outstanding patient care that is patient-centered, evidence-based, and reflective of current best practices. Our success in this goal has been demonstrated by multiple outcomes (including mortality rates) that are dramatically superior to national benchmarks. Our group has high expectations with regard to professionalism and communication and believes that treating patients means more than just treating organs and diseases.
