Your Health Care Team: Working Together to Make You Well

From the outstanding physicians in our Hospitalist Program to our extraordinarily competent and compassionate Magnet Status nurses, you can count on every member of your health care team to provide you with timely, attentive, quality care.

Hospitalists Available 24/7

Hospitalists are physicians who oversee your care from the time you arrive in the hospital until you are discharged to your primary care physician. Because they are available around the clock, hospitalists:

  • Visit with patients and their families several times a day
  • Collaborate closely with the nursing staff and ancillary departments
  • Provide quick attention to any issue that may arrive
  • Hospitalists also communicate with your primary care physician, providing frequent written updates throughout your stay and a full summary upon hospital discharge

Compassionate Nurse Managers

A Nurse Manager directs the administrative management of a nursing unit. He or she has overall around-the-clock responsibility for all aspects of patient care provided on the unit.

Your Collaborative Nursing Team

A talented team of Magnet Status nursing personnel is directly responsible for providing you with personalized care. Each nursing team works with an assigned number of patients and includes an Advanced Practice Nurse, a Registered Nurse and a Patient Care Assistant, as well as a Unit Secretary.
