Department of Internal Medicine Hospitalist Service

The Hospitalist Service is a joint program between Pitt County Memorial Hospital, Brody School of Medicine and Physicians East. The service is available to family practitioners and internists who admit patients to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Physicians who subscribe to the program receive coverage for their patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a hospitalist physician and a family nurse practitioner. Patients return to the care of their primary physician at discharge.

The Hospitalist Service prides itself in providing continuous medical oversight of patients and promoting continuity of care. Importantly, there is a focus on enhancing the satisfaction of patients during their inpatient hospitalization.
