How Does It Work?

When you require hospitalization your regular physician will coordinate your admission with the hospitalist team at River Oaks Hospital. Your hospitalist will ensure that all medical history is received from your physician and that all information about your medical condition needed by your physician is available.  Your hospitalist will also work with you and your family to make sure you understand your treatment throughout and even after your stay at River Oaks Hospital.  

Your hospitalist will:   

  • Assess your treatment throughout your stay
  • Coordinate your diagnostic testing such as x-rays, blood tests or other procedures
  • Arrange specialty care including therapy or consults with other specialists
  • Transition your medical care back to your physician who will resume responsibility
