The hospitalist program at Quincy Medical Center is a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, and a physician assistant who are trained in internal medicine or family medicine and provide round-the-clock specialized care to hospitalized patients. Our hospitalist program physicians focus exclusively on the care of patients admitted to Quincy Medical Center. These physicians do not maintain private practices or office hours.
At Quincy Medical Center, most of our inpatients are referred by their primary care physicians and specialists to the hospitalist program for care. The hospitalists also care for any hospitalized patients who do not have a primary care physician. The hospitalists at Quincy Medical Center provide 24-hour service, seven days a week.
Hospitalists manage each patient’s course through the hospital, coordinating and consulting with primary care physicians and specialists, ordering diagnostic imaging studies and laboratory tests, and closely monitoring the patient’s progress. When a patient is ready to leave Quincy Medical Center, the hospitalist will prepare a discharge plan, including written and verbal instructions and any necessary prescriptions. This plan will also include appointments for follow-up with a primary care physician and relevant specialists.
