Twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week, our Department of Hospital Medicine ensures high-priority care during your stay in the hospital. Because we spend our entire time in the hospital, we are available throughout the day for admissions and emergencies. We care for you in the same manner as your own primary care physician, ordering treatments, tests and consulting with other specialists.
Hospital medicine is a hands-on medical specialty that translates to better care and better use of hospital resources. It also shortens the length of your stay so you can get back to the comfort of your home. Once you’re discharged from the hospital, care will return to your primary care physician.
Benefits of hospital medicine at Florida Medical Clinic:
- Highest Quality of Care
Having a dedicated hospital physician with complete knowledge of the hospital system results in a higher level of care for you.
- Patient Satisfaction
Hospitalized patients no longer have to wait until regular office hours are over to receive the care they deserve. Typically, your hospitalist will make multiple evaluations a day on recovery progress and overall health. Hospitalists can also be more accessible to you and your family members.
- One Medical Record
We will have access to your Florida Medical Clinic electronic health record, which provides important information about medical history, current medications and more.
