What is a Hospitalist?Specially trained hospital-based doctors who practice exclusively at the hospital are known as hospitalists, hence the name. Hospitalists order appropriate diagnostic tests, monitor their patients' conditions, make treatment decisions with input from primary care doctors, and coordinate patient care among all members of the hospital staff. A hospitalist doesn't see patients away from a hospital. In fact, the hospitalist's sole responsibility is to care for hospitalized patients, from admission to discharge.
