Our 24/7 Hospitalist Program
The doctor is always in at Geisinger Holy Spirit, thanks to our established Hospitalist Program.
Hospitalists are physicians who oversee your care from the moment you arrive in the hospital until you are discharged. Hospitalist programs in hospitals across the nation are delivering improved quality-of-care and enhanced satisfaction.
Because they are available around the clock, hospitalists collaborate closely with the nursing staff and ancillary departments and give problems the quick attention they require. They are experts in Hospital Medicine and will provide daily updates, including plan of care and condition, to patients and their families.
Benefits of our Hospitalist Program include:
- Continuous provider access through efficient and coordinated care
- Immediate response by a hospitalist to sudden changes in patient condition
- Expedited access, via the hospitalist, to diagnostic and therapeutic intervention and specialty services
- Expertise and the most current medical knowledge of inpatient medicine
Hospitalists also effectively communicate with your primary care physician, providing updates and a full summary when you are discharged.
