In-house Internal Medicine Doctors
Our Hospitalist Service is another example of how Geisinger leads the way in innovative care delivery. We offer this unique approach to ensure that you have maximum physician attention during your overnight stay at one of our hospitals. And you can rest assured that your primary care physician is attuned to your status.
Our Hospitalist doctors are solely dedicated to caring for you while you are a patient. These internal medicine physicians check on you multiple times each day to monitor your condition and answer any questions you or your family may have.
Hospitalists work only within Geisinger, using a team approach. A seasoned internal medicine physician serves as your attending doctor. And, since Geisinger is a teaching hospital, interns and residents focused on internal and primary care medicine also serve on your team. Working in tandem with your nursing staff, hospitalists provide extensive medical coverage for you from admission through discharge.
Your hospitalist team communicates closely with your primary care physician to keep him or her informed of your medical status and needs once you leave.
Who cares for you most? All of us at Geisinger. You deserve all of our attention.
