Hospitalists are family practice or internal medicine trained physicians who exclusively manage hospitalized patients. Because they only take care of patients in the hospital, they are able to focus their time and attention on patients' medical needs.
The hospitalists communicate with primary care physicians at admission, during the patient's stay, and at dismissal to ensure continuity of care for every patient.
When a patient leaves the hospital, their primary care doctor provides the follow-up care.
