Physicians of the Adult Hospitalist Service direct and coordinate medical and specialty care for patients admitted to the hospital. A Hospitalist is an Internal Medicine physician who specializes in the comprehensive care of hospitalized patients and works closely with your family physician when your health needs require close monitoring.

Hospitalist physicians are available at Sparrow 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide careful medical oversight. Hospitalists typically work in shifts. This means that you might see more than one hospitalist during your course of stay, depending on how long you are in the hospital.

The members of the Sparrow Hospitalist Team are dedicated to providing the very best medical care during your hospital stay, and collaborating closely with patients and families for a safe transition between hospital and family physician.

Some hospitalists specialize in pediatric patients.
