While you are a patient at Piedmont Medical Center, your care may be provided by one or more doctors who are members of our hospital-based physician team. These highly trained
physicians are known as “hospitalists” because they specialize in treating patients who have been admitted to the hospital.

During your stay, a hospitalist will serve as the coordinator for your medical care. These physicians work exclusively within the hospital and can be readily available to meet with you and your loved ones to discuss your care, treatment options and any questions you may have. Your hospitalist will work closely with the nursing staff and health care providers involved in your care and may also refer any specialists who are needed to treat your condition.


Patients in our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) receive advanced treatments and extensive monitoring from a group of highly skilled physicians called intensivists. Intensivists have earned additional certification in the medical subspecialty of Critical Care Medicine and specialize in treating seriously ill and injured adult patients. As medical care coordinators for all patients in the ICU, intensivists consult and collaborate with patients’ primary care physicians, specialists and members of the patient’s clinical team.


Pediatric Hospitalists
Our pediatric hospitalist team is committed to providing care to our youngest patients – infants and children ages 0 to 18 years. These physicians have received additional training in childhood diseases and illnesses and work with the medical providers involved in your child’s hospital care. When your child leaves the hospital, the pediatric hospitalist will provide your child’s primary doctor with information about your child’s condition, care received while in the hospital and any further treatment that may be required.
