OhioHealth Hospitalists

The team who coordinates your inpatient hospital care.

The OhioHealth hospitalists of our Hospital Medicine Service, are responsible for coordinating your care with the medical professionals on your care team during your inpatient stay in Grant Medical Center, Doctors Hospital or Grady Memorial Hospital.  Working together with the hospital care team of your other physicians or surgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses, therapists and case managers, our goal is to have you feeling better and back at home soon.

The hospitalist will visit you in your room during your hospital stay and will coordinate care among all your other physicians and care providers.

Often times your hospitalist will be accompanied by other members of your healthcare team (nurse, case manager, pharmacist) when he or she visits you. We invite you to actively participate in our group rounds and bring up any questions or concerns that you have. We look forward to discussing your medical care with you and your family.

During your stay, your hospitalist will:

  • Direct and coordinate your care
  • Discuss treatment options
  • Answer your questions
  • Monitor test results
  • Quickly respond to changes in your condition
  • Collaborate and coordinate with other physician specialists

Hospitalists can help facilitate connections with providers such as home health, skilled nursing and rehabilitation services that you may need after leaving the hospital. If you do not have a primary care physician, your hospitalist can help you find one who can manage your care after you go home.
