Exceptional Care for Hospitalized Patients
Loyola Medicine’s hospital medicine physicians, also known as hospitalists, provide comprehensive and compassionate care to patients admitted to the hospital. Hospitalists are board-certified in internal medicine, with additional training in inpatient care. Like internists, hospitalists have undergone extensive training to diagnose and treat complex illnesses, as well as manage the prevention of illnesses. They are equipped to see new patients hospitalized for a multitude of reasons on a daily basis.
When patients are admitted to the hospital, one of Loyola’s expert hospitalists will tend to their medical care during the hospital stay, as well as communicate with their primary care physician or specialist regarding inpatient care. Your healthcare team will collaborate to provide you with the best possible care and most effective and advanced treatment available.
Hospitalists provide a wide range of services to diagnose, treat and prevent diseases while you are in our care. Your hospitalist care team can keep you comfortable with pain management, provide appropriate testing to monitor your condition and consult with you and your family on the next steps for treatment.
