Our Team

The Hospital Medicine Service specializes in providing comprehensive care to hospitalized patients. Hospitalists focus their practice on a specific group of patients and have expertise in managing very ill patients in the hospital setting. They provide high quality, evidence-based and efficient patient and family centered care. When patients are ready to be discharged, hospitalists ensure that medications are correct, follow-up appointments are scheduled, and that all services are in place for a safe transition home.

We are seeking a PA or NP to work collaboratively with hospital medicine physicians providing in-house coverage for patients on the medical service.
