Providing award-winning care
O:A:S:I:S Hospital is committed to taking exceptional care of our patients. That is why our medical staff includes hospitalists who care for patients with complex medical needs around the clock. We offer a 24/7 in-house hospitalist program with board-certified internal medicine and critical care doctors caring for you or your loved one.
What is a hospitalist doctor’s role?
A hospitalist is a primary care doctor who specializes in caring for patients in the hospital. Because of this, our hospitalists have more experience in caring for complex medical conditions. Their extensive experience helps them to recognize and diagnose unusual disorders, anticipate problems and rapidly respond to crises or changes in a patient’s condition.
What are the advantages of a hospitalist program?
A hospitalist is always at the hospital so that he or she can respond quickly to changes in a patient’s condition and answer questions immediately. Hospitalists know and work closely and consistently with all of the members of your healthcare team, including physical therapists, nurses and case managers. Our hospitalists are the leaders in innovation, quality improvement and system development. They provide our patients with the highest quality care possible.
Working together with your orthopaedic surgeon
Our hospitalists work closely with your orthopaedic surgeon to ensure the best possible care for you or your loved one. Our hospitalists discuss your necessary treatments, testing, follow-up appointments and medication prescriptions with your surgeon prior to your discharge to ensure that all of your needs are met and all of your questions are answered.
O:A:S:I:S Hospital is proud to partner with the physicians of Desert Vista Medical Associates.
