Behavioral Health Hospitalist Program

What is a hospitalist?


A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients. Hospitals only see patients in the hospital and are referred by the patient's primary care physician or admitted through the emergency room. They have no outpatient practice. Hospitalists manage all aspects of a patient's care from the time of admission until discharge from the hospital.
