Oconee Memorial Hospital
Many patients at Oconee Memorial Hospital are cared for by our team of hospitalists. Our hospitalist program is one of the ways we ensure patients receive the highest caliber of care during their hospital stay.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients while they are in the hospital. Our hospitalist services feature a team of full-time internal medicine and family medicine physicians who dedicate 100 percent of their time to the hospital focusing their attention on hospitalized patients. Due to their knowledge and familiarity with the hospital, our hospitalists are skilled in utilizing hospital resources very effectively and efficiently.
Oconee Memorial Hospital hospitalists work closely with the patient’s primary care physician to make sure patients receive the best possible care during their hospital stay. Patients who do not have a family physician are assigned to the hospitalist program upon admission to the hospital. This way Oconee County Memorial Hospital ensures that every patient receives optimal health care.
Our hospitalists provide around-the-clock care and are board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and American Academy of Family Physicians. They order tests, prescribe medications, monitor patients’ progress and ensure patients receive the highest level of care while in the hospital. They even help patients after their hospital discharge by arranging follow-up care with primary and specialty care physicians, referring them to appropriate programs and ensuring they have the prescription medications they need.
