Adult Hospitalist Program
What is a Hospitalist?A Hospitalist is a dedicated physician or advanced practice provider (APP) who specializes in treating patients in a hospital setting. Franklin Hospital's Adult Hospitalist Physicians are internal medicine specialists.
What are the benefits of care from a Hospitalist?Because Hospitalists specialize in hospital medicine, studies have found that patients treated by Hospitalists do better than hospitalized patients treated by their regular doctors. Hospitalists are familiar with the hospital staff and specialist physicians, as well as with the hospital's policies and procedures. This ensures that the highest quality of care is provided to each patient. Following a patient's release, he or she will return to the care of his or her own healthcare provider.
Hospitalists are available to Franklin Hospital's patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing the focused attention required to coordinate the best possible patient care. The Hospitalist monitors your progress and communicates with you, your family and your primary care physician.
