Patient-Focused Care — The Way It Should Be

While you are in the hospital, an expert in hospital medicine called a hospitalist will supervise and coordinate your care. Hospitalists are experts who know how to deliver the most effective and efficient care while you are in the hospital.

Our team of hospitalists is committed to providing excellent care for all patients. Hospitalists are physicians who practice exclusively in the hospital setting and are available to care for our patients 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. They work closely with specialists, hospital staff and your personal physicians to ensure that you and your family get the best possible care.

Since hospitalists are based at the hospital, medical decisions are made as quickly as situations arise. Treatments can be modified, test results are obtained faster and follow-up response time is greatly reduced. This helps prevent medical complications, reduce hospital stays and enhance hospital efficiency. In addition, our hospitalists have extensive training and hospital experience in caring for severely ill or injured patients. This results in more rapid and accurate clinical decision making for better outcomes and fewer readmissions.

Together, we are committed to getting you on the road to recovery and back to doing the things you love. Should you have any additional questions regarding our Hospitalist Program at Williamson Medical Center, please contact us at (615) 435-6700.
