Ottumwa Regional Health Center's Hospitalist Program
Our mission is to partner with your Primary Care Provider to provide you and your family with the highest level of care during your stay. Our Hospitalists play an essential role in helping us achieve that goal.
How does the Hospitalist team with your Primary Care Provider?
The Hospitalist and your Primary Care Provider will work together during your hospital stay. For example, after providing the Hospitalist with a medical history, your Primary Care Provider will receive admission information, including diagnosis and treatment plan.
Will the primary care provider be updated about your patient's progress during their hospital stay?
Yes. The Hospitalist will keep your Primary Care Provider informed and up to date about your progress, including any significant changes in your condition. When it's time for you to leave the hospital, the Hospitalist will ensure continuity of care by contacting your Primary Care Provider with all the necessary information, such as prescriptions, appointments, and follow-up care.
