About

Faith Regional Hospital Medicine
If you are admitted as an inpatient at Faith Regional, your primary care doctor, an emergency doctor or another specialist may refer you to a hospitalist to care for you while you are in the hospital. Hospitalists specialize in internal medicine and are trained to care for hospitalized patients. They work directly with your primary care doctor, surgeon, specialists, nurses and other medical professionals in managing your hospital care. A hospitalist will:

  • Manage all aspects of your daily hospital care, including coordination of specialists and other medical providers.
  • Communicate with your primary care doctor with daily progress notes detailing your condition and plan of care.
  • Make arrangements for your discharge and prescribe your home medications.
  • Contact your primary care doctor before you leave the hospital.
  • Send a summary report to your doctor’s office.

A hospitalist is available on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your medical needs and to answer any questions that you and your family have.

To Contact a Hospitalist
To speak with your hospitalist while you or a family member is in the hospital, ask your nurse to page the doctor. If your assigned hospitalist is not on duty, then another hospitalist who is knowledgeable of your medical care will visit with you.

You may also contact a hospitalist after you have returned home if you have questions about your hospital stay. Leave a message at (402) 844-8211 and we will return your call. For all other medical concerns (including prescriptions), please call your primary care physician.
