Hospital Medicine Services

Welcome to Emory Healthcare Hospital Medicine Services

Hospital stays can be tough on you and your loved ones. When you're facing a hospital stay, also known as inpatient care, it helps to know you're being treated by a team whose primary role is to smooth the way for a better stay. Doctors, also called hospitalists, diagnose and manage your health problems when you're getting inpatient care.

What a Hospitalist Does

Emory Healthcare's Hospital Medicine service is the nation's most extensive academic hospital medicine program. During your stay at one of our hospitals, you can expect our board-certified hospitalist team to:

  • Provide the highest-quality care
  • Examine or evaluate you once a day or more
  • Consult with several doctors on our hospitalist team
  • Stay in communication with your nurses and other hospital staff
  • Review your test results
  • Meet with your family to make sure they have the best information about you
  • Share information and work closely with your primary care doctor
  • Be in the hospital 24 hours a day to respond to you and your family's needs

Along with the primary duty of overseeing your care during your hospital stay, our hospitalists also help educate future health care professionals and perform research that leads to better hospital care.

They Know Our Hospitals Inside and Out

The hospitalists have an in-depth knowledge of every specialist and department in our hospitals. This smooths the way for a faster recovery for you because they can follow up on tests and adjust your treatments throughout the day based on test results and their teamwork with other doctors. Their focus is always on you and your hospital stay.

Hospital Medicine Services

Over a hundred doctors provide hospital medicine services at our hospitals in the greater metropolitan Atlanta area. They offer several benefits and services from the first day of your hospital stay until the day you leave.

How Does a Hospitalist Benefit Referring Physicians?

Emory Healthcare Hospitalists receive admissions from the emergency room, outpatient clinics and hospitals across the Southeastern United States. This allows patients without a primary care physician to be cared for quickly and reliably should they need to be admitted.

It also allows primary care physicians and specialists to focus on their outpatient practices, improving their quality of life and increasing their satisfaction. Our Hospitalists will use the consultants you request. Together, Hospitalists and outpatient physicians are able to deliver high-quality care avoid delays and inconveniences to patients.
