A hospitalist is a physician that specializes in caring for patients while they are hospitalized. Hospitalists communicate with the patient’s primary care providers, as well as any other specialists that may be working with that patient. Patients see hospitalists regularly throughout their inpatient stay. They are available all day or night to care for patients. “My goal as a hospitalist is to assist my patients through a smooth recovery process by managing and coordinating all aspects of their care and to ensure that they enjoy positive outcomes,” according to Dr. Mahmood.
