Hospital medicine is the medical specialty that focuses on managing the clinical problems of acutely ill patients during a hospital stay. Doctors who practice hospital medicine are called hospitalists.
UMMC hospitalists are dedicated to the general medical care for hospitalized patients. Our hospitalists work closely with emergency department physicians, primary care doctors, surgeons, and other medical specialists to provide efficient, quality care from admission to discharge. Because of their expertise in inpatient care and primary presence in the hospital, hospitalists are able to diagnose unusual disorders, anticipate problems, and rapidly respond to crises or changes in a patient's condition.
