A Hospitalist is a physician who specializes in caring for patients in the hospital. The Erlanger Hospitalist Group includes board-certified internal medicine or family practice physicians who have additional training or experience in the field of hospital medicine. This means they don’t see outpatients or care for patients after discharge; their complete focus is your inpatient stay at the hospital.

A Hospitalist:

  • Directs your treatment and is available 24/7
  • Coordinates with other medical specialists and departments in our health system to help ensure the most appropriate care

Erlanger’s Hospitalist Group is involved in the care of nearly 80% of adult patients at the following locations:

  • Erlanger Baroness Hospital
  • Erlanger East Hospital
  • Erlanger North Hospital
  • Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital
