Hospitalists are internal medicine specialists specifically trained in hospital-based, inpatient medicine. There is a hospitalist team at each of our hospitals — Froedtert Hospital, Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital and Froedtert West Bend Hospital.
Your hospitalist team includes physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, and is available 24/7 to handle patient admissions, rounding and discharges. They coordinate care and treat and monitor all aspects of your condition while in the hospital.
A member of our hospitalist team will send a complete summary of your care while in the hospital to your primary care physician or specialist, who will resume responsibility for ongoing outpatient treatment and follow-up care.
