As part of our commitment to providing excellent inpatient medical care,
Shasta Regional Medical Center is pleased to offer patients the service

A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in caring for patients in
the hospital. Our hospitalists work with emergency department physicians,
your primary care physician (PCP) and any necessary specialists to provide
a seamless transition, from admission to discharge to outpatient follow-up.
Hospitalists are available to provide care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
and are accessible throughout your hospital stay. They know every specialty
and department in the hospital and are in the hospital all day, ready
to assist you. During critical and stressful moments, they will provide
honest and considerate answers to your questions and will be able to spend
time talking to you and your family about your care at times when your
primary care physician is not available.
Shasta Regional Medical Center hospitalists are Board certified/Board eligible
internal or family medicine physicians, and generally do not have an outpatient
medical practice. Many hospitalists have additional training in pulmonary,
critical care medicine or other sub-specialties. Our hospitalists typically
work one week on and one week off, so you may see more than one hospitalist
physician during your stay.
