When you are admitted to Canyon Vista Medical Center, your inpatient care will be carefully managed by our hospitalist team. Since primary care doctors focus on outpatient care, hospitalists ensure a continuum of high-quality care while you're in the hospital. Hospitalists are available 24 hours a day, every day to ensure you receive excellent care by:
- Coordinating and managing your inpatient care, including communicating with your primary care doctor, arranging tests and following up on results, and fulfilling any pre- or post-operative needs.
- Communicating directly with you and your family to ensure you are well informed and are receiving excellent care.
- Handling any urgent situations.
- Coordinating your discharge from the hospital and follow-up care with your primary doctor or other health care professionals once you leave the hospital.
