What is a Hospitalist?
The Hospital Medicine program at KSB Hospital consists of physicians and Advanced Practice Providers who specialize in the medical care of inpatients while communicating with family physicians. An on-site Hospital Medicine provider, also called a Hospitalist, means that inpatients receive prompt, quality medical care without waiting for off-site physicians to visit or call.
Many hospitals around the country are adopting Hospital Medicine programs to promote efficient inpatient care, reduce safety risks, and provide a better patient experience.
Why is a Hospitalist Caring for Me?
Many of KSB’s Primary Care Physicians have partnered with the hospital to participate in the Hospital Medicine program. Any care you require while hospitalized will be delivered to you by one of our Hospitalists. In the event of an emergency, KSB Hospitalists are close by to respond quickly.

How is my Primary Care Physician Included in My Care?
To ensure seamless patient care, KSB Hospitalists keep your primary care physician informed of your health status during your stay. Upon your discharge from our inpatient unit, our Hospitalists will work with your primary care provider to arrange for follow up care. If you do not have a primary care physician, our staff will work with you to help establish with a doctor before your discharge.
