Hospitalist Care

Hospitalist 750x250

Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the caring for patients during their hospital stay. One of our qualified hospitalists will be in charge of your care during your stay at Newton Medical Center. If you are in the hospital for many days, you may see more than one hospitalist. These doctors are available to you and your family to answer questions and discuss your care.

If consultations by other physicians are necessary while you are in the hospital, your hospitalist will arrange these. If you regularly see other doctors, be sure to let us know so we can keep them informed of your hospitalization.

After you are discharged, your hospitalist will provide a summary to your primary care physician including all pertinent information regarding your hospitalization, medications and any further treatment and future appointments needed. If you do not have a primary care physician, your hospitalist or other hospital staff can assist in finding a physician for you, and records from your hospital stay can be sent to this physician.
