HOSPITALIST PROGRAM ENHANCES PATIENT CARE AT GREENVILLE REGIONAL HOSPITAL

 

Since May, a hospitalist has been on duty at Greenville Regional Hospital.  A hospitalist is a physician whose primary professional focus is the medical care of hospitalized patients.  His activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care.  Patients and families appreciate having a hospital physician available to them throughout the day and Greenville physicians have more time to devote to their office practices.  Continuity of care is ensured, as the hospitalist is involved in the entire hospitalization experience.  Studies show that hospitalists can reduce lengths of stay in hospitals by 30 percent and costs by up to 20 percent, while increasing quality of care and patient satisfaction.
