Hospitalist Program

Enloe Medical Center includes hospitalists on our medical staff to devote time to your health care needs. By working with patients from admission through discharge, these doctors can better determine when tests should be run, promptly interpret test results and personally check on you more frequently. 

What Is a Hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a physician who is dedicated to treating patients during their hospital stay. They may also diagnose conditions and perform medical procedures. The physicians of the Chico Hospitalist Group will manage your inpatient care and keep in close contact with you.

Primary care physicians have the option to refer their patients to a hospitalist for the needed care of a hospital stay. At Enloe, we are glad to offer this service to help provide you with a quality experience.

During Your Stay

During your stay at Enloe, one or more of the hospitalist physicians will direct your care. Each member of the hospitalist care team is dedicated to assisting you throughout your visit. Even though a hospitalist is available 24 hours a day, it is best to speak to the hospitalist physician between the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Though you may not see the same physician every day of your hospital stay, members of the hospitalist team regularly communicate with each other about your care and treatment plan.

After You Leave

During discharge, the hospitalist caring for you will communicate with your primary care physician to arrange for follow-up treatment and prescribe any necessary medication. Enloe Medical Center will send your hospital records to your physician at the time of discharge.

If you have  questions about your care after you are discharged, please be sure to contact your primary physician. Looking for a doctor? Check out Enloe's online physician directory.
