CaroMont Hospitalist Program

CaroMont Hospitalist Program

The CaroMont Hospitalist Program works to provide care to patients during their stay at CaroMont Regional Medical Center. Because our highly-skilled hospitalists are based at the medical center, they are available to provide timely care while maintaining communication with your primary and specialty physicians. Being on-site also allows these physicians to order lab tests, review results, consult with specialists and prescribe treatment — all in the same day.

Additionally, hospitalists have more time to answer your family’s questions because being at the hospital increases their availability to talk with patients and their families. It also allows the hospitalists to get to know the staff, which improves communication for all.

What is a Hospitalist?
A hospitalist is a physician who treats patients only during their stay in a hospital. This allows the patient to receive medical care from a physician who has vast experience in the needs of hospitalized patients. There is consistent communication between the hospitalist and the primary care physician to ensure all parties are updated about the patient’s care, condition and progress.
