If you are a CapitalCare primary care patient and you are admitted to the hospital, you may be seen by a Hospitalist. (Please note that most of our specialists see their own patients during a hospital stay.)
Hospitalists are physicians who are dedicated to providing comprehensive medical care for patients who are in the hospital. Communication between the Hospitalist and your primary care practitioner is important and we will ensure that the Hospitalist has the information that’s needed to care for you. And we will contact the hospital to be sure we have the information we need when you are discharged.
A member of our office staff will call you soon after discharge to schedule a follow-up visit if needed. When appropriate, we will help coordinate home care or other needs with our Care Management team.
