Our hospitalists have been serving the Wilmington community for over 20 years. 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.
A public education initiative to encourage people to identify and communicate their healthcare choices.
The goal is to encourage everyone to complete advance care directives focusing on the value of conversations in advanced care planning.
Encourage your loved ones to Begin the Conversation about advanced care planning today. Make sure those closest to you know your end of life choices.

Thank you for allowing our Wilmington Health Hospitalists to care for you or your family member’s healthcare needs during a recent hospital visit. As our hospitalists only provide care at the hospital, it is important that you follow up now with your primary care provider to support you on follow-up care. Please be sure to schedule a visit as soon as possible with your PCP post your discharge from the hospital. If your PCP is a Wilmington Health provider, you can locate their contact information here.
If you find that you need any medical records or forms to be completed by the hospital, please do connect with them at 910-343-7000.
