Hospitalists are physicians who chose to dedicate their careers entirely to the care of the acutely ill hospitalized patients in our community, with considerable experience and expertise in a wide range of acute illnesses ranging from cardiac conditions to stroke and infections, and an eye toward ensuring that many chronic medical conditions are coordinated and managed together as a continuum of care between the office and hospital. Hospitalist physicians in general have been leaders in the movement to make hospitals safer places for patients.
