Hospitalists, physicians who specialize in the care of hospitalized patients, are part of the medical staff at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville.
Services provided include:
- Admission and care of patients of physicians who specialize solely in office practice
- Care of patients admitted through the Emergency Room who elect to have a hospitalist take care of them in lieu of another physician on the medical staff
- Consultation with other physicians on the medical staff in areas of the hospitalist's knowledge
Hospitalists on the medical staff at Texas Health Stephenville also provide a consistency of care when a patient is admitted to the hospital more than once. Because a hospitalist on the medical staff only does inpatient work, he or she will see the same kinds of cases more often than physicians who are not hospital based. This familiarity with conditions could be beneficial in patient diagnosis and treatment. For more information, call 254-965-8722.
