If your physician has sent you to the hospital to be admitted to any other department, keep in mind that we need orders from him or her before that admission can be completed. If you or a loved one is arriving by ambulance, the clerk can handle your admission, or a family member can provide us with the information we need.
While you’re in the hospital, your care may be coordinated by a hospitalist, a physician who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients.

Your hospitalist will work closely with your personal doctor to ensure your care is coordinated and your provider will be fully informed about your progress during your hospital stay.
