The hospitalist program is designed to provide better access to physicians and more continuity of care for patients during their hospital stay.
Our hospitalist program enables Hutchinson Regional Medical Center, as a community hospital, to make a doctor available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to the patient. That supports our goal to improve and maintain patient satisfaction.
Hospitalist physicians are an integral part of the health care team, providing patient care in the acute care setting throughout a patient’s hospital stay. They consult with specialists as necessary and coordinate care transitions with patients’ primary care physicians.
Sound Physicians began providing hospitalist coverage for Hutchinson Clinic Physicians at HRMC on November 3, 2015 under an agreement signed by all three parties.
"I am excited about any initiative which improves the quality of patient care," -Ken Johnson, CEO at HRMC.
