The IRMC Hospitalist Program is an integrated team composed of physicians and advanced practice providers. We work together from the time you arrive in our emergency department to the time you leave our hospital. You and your family are important to our team, and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to you and your family.
What to expect during your hospital stay
From the moment you arrive at Indiana Regional Medical Center emergency department our team will collaborate with your primary care physician to treat and evaluate you. After the decision has been made by our integrated team to admit you to the hospital, you will be moved to another floor and your care will be transferred to one of our highly trained hospitalists.
What is a hospitalist?
Hospitalists are physicians who are board-certified in internal medicine or family medicine and who specialize in the care of hospitalized patients. They are available to care for you 24 hours a day.
Does the hospitalist communicate with my primary care physician?
Your primary care physician and the hospitalist will communicate at the time of your admission and discharge and will discuss important details about your hospitalization. When it's time for you to leave the hospital our team will make an appointment for you to follow up with your primary care physician. We are available for you and your family 24 hours a day to answer your questions and discuss your care. Our goal is to provide you and your family with the best patient experience. If you have any questions please feel free to call.
