Your Care Team
Physicians specializing in the care of hospitalized patients are called Hospitalists. Your Hospitalist will serve as your “hospital physician” while you are a patient in the hospital. Your primary doctor and your Hospitalist can work closely together to make sure you get the best possible care during your stay. If you are a Signature Medical Group patient, your medical record from your hospital stay will be available to your primary care physician.

The Patient Advocate is available Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, with the exception of holidays.
A nurse Case Manager assists the patient, family, and healthcare team with developing a discharge plan that best meets the patients’ post discharge needs. The Case Manager monitors the patients’ progress daily and collaborates with the patients’ insurance company to coordinate aftercare services.
