Should you be admitted to Huntington Hospital, we have a team of hospital-based providers ready to care for you as an extension of your primary care provider. They will be in regular contact with your primary provider to ensure continuity of care while hospitalized and after discharge.
Our physicians work closely with our hospitalists at Huntington Hospital to ensure continuity of care for our patients admitted to the hospital.
What is a Hospitalist?
A hospitalist is an internal medicine physician who specializes in care for hospitalized patients. Think of them as your doctor while you are in the hospital. They work closely with your primary physician to ensure you receive the best possible care while hospitalized and after discharge.
Palliative Care is medical care that relieves pain, symptoms and stress caused by serious, chronic, and life-threatening illnesses. This specialized care helps people at any age, at any stage of a disease, and can be provided along with curative treatment.
It focuses on a whole-person treatment approach for the physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of an illness – to maximize the quality of life for both the patients and their loved ones.
