The Hospitalist and your primary care physician work together to ensure you get the care you need during your hospital stay. Your primary care physician provides information about your past health history. Your primary care physician can check on you and discuss your care with the Hospitalist anytime during your stay.
At the time of your admission and discharge, your Hospitalist prepares a detailed report of findings and treatment plans for your primary care physician. When you are discharged from the hospital, you will return to the care of your primary care physician.
