Hospital Medicine

Hospitalists streamline patient care at Onslow Memorial Hospital, as well as help busy primary care physicians care for their patients. These board-certified physicians are trained in internal medicine or family medicine and are dedicated to providing care for inpatients or for patients who come into the Emergency Department.

Hospitalists don’t have office practices, so they are dedicated solely to serving patients admitted to the hospital. This support improves our quality of patient care by providing immediate attention to patients’ needs during their hospital stay, especially when their physician may not be available.

Hospitalists work in partnership with your physician to ensure you the highest quality of care during your stay, and that you receive the best continuity of care after you leave.

Our hospitalists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to care for patients who are admitted to Onslow Memorial Hospital.
