Hospitalist Program

Mercy Medical Center's hospitalist program is made up of skilled providers committed to providing quality and efficient medical care exclusively to hospitalized patients.

While being treated at Mercy Medical Center, your primary physician may enlist the help of a hospitalist to care for you during your stay. While the hospitalist will be highly engaged in your medical care, your primary physician will be continuously updated on your admission, discharge or any changes in your health during your stay at Mercy.
