Hospitalists benefit our patients in several important ways:
- They have extensive experience caring for patients in the hospital environment, including critical care, post-surgical care, palliative care and more
- They give your primary care team the freedom to focus on the everyday health care needs of patients
- They ensure you have someone to talk to 24/7 about you or your loved ones' clinical status and plan of care
- During critical and stressful moments, they are there to provide compassionate and honest answers to your most difficult questions.
Nocturnists, whose expertise is in monitoring and caring for patients during the overnight hours, are a sub-specialization of hospitalists and ensure you have uninterrupted access to a Facey doctor when you are in the hospital.
Hospitalists do not attend to patients being seen in the Emergency Department. They see patients who have been admitted (inpatient) for either scheduled or ongoing emergency care. They also may not be the only Facey physicians you see during your stay. Our team of surgeons, pediatricians, and OB/Gyn physicians also regularly visit our partner hospitals may visit you if you are currently under their care.
Our hospitalists are selected for their medical expertise, compassion and excellent communication skills. With your permission, Facey hospitalists will also answer any questions that family members may have.
