TriHealth’s team of more than 30 board-certified and board-eligible hospitalists provide efficient, high-quality care – around the clock – to patients at Bethesda Butler, Bethesda North and Good Samaritan hospitals. A hospitalist is a physician who follows each patient's treatment and progress from the time they are admitted to the hospital until they are released. Hospitalists also:

  • Keep in frequent contact with the patient's primary care physician
  • Follow up on and order new tests
  • Adjust treatment plans as needed to ensure each patient receives the best care possible
  • Work with each specialist, nurse and clinical hospital staff member to integrate patient care
  • Streamline communication to promote quality outcomes for the patient
