HOSPITALIST
A hospitalist is an internal medicine physician who specializes in the care of patients in the acute care
setting. New London Hospital began a hospitalist program in August of 2004 designed to improve care for
patients admitted to the hospital, as well as improve care for patients in the outpatient setting. Upon
admission to the hospital as a medical patient, the hospitalist will manage all aspects of the hospitalization,
including admission and discharge, ordering tests, lab work and coordinate care with specialists as needed.
The hospitalist communicates care plans with the patient, the family and the primary care physician. The
surgical specialists utilize the hospitalist for consultations on medical issues. The surgical specialist utilize
