Referring Physicians

Thank you for giving our hospitalist physicians the opportunity to help you care for some of your patients. We will make every effort to accommodate your patients irrespective of insurance, the location of your practice, or whether you elect to use our service sporadically or exclusively. However, we do limit patient volume to promote a quality, patient-safe environment and therefore may not be able to facilitate all requests for patient care. Please refer to the Program Status information in the right column.

  • More efficient and timely inpatient care
