Rutland Regional Medical Center is one of many medical centers now using hospital medicine specialists to care for patients in the event of a hospital stay. The hospital medicine specialist is a physician who specializes in patient care in a hospital setting. 

Most hospital medicine specialists at Rutland are board-certified in the following specialties:

  • General Internal Medicine
  • Family Medicine
  • Other Specialties

Our hospital medicine specialists work closely as a team, so you may see more than one during your stay. The hospital medicine program will be the primary care team, and will:

  • Manage All Hospital Care
  • Consult with Specialists
  • Monitor your Progress
  • Keep You, Your Family & Your Primary Care Physician (PCP) up-to-date

Benefits of Being Cared for by a Hospital Medicine Specialist

Rutland Regional hospital medicine specialists work only in the hospital and are on-site day and night – making them readily available to respond quickly to emergencies or problems. They know every specialist and department in the hospital, so this allows them better coordination of inpatient care, follow-up on tests and treatment adjustments.

Working Together for Patients

Our hospital medicine specialists and primary care physicians work together, keeping close contact to make sure patients get the best possible care.

  • Once admitted, your PCP is contacted in order to bring the hospital medicine team up-to-date on your condition and medical history.
  • The hospital medicine team informs your PCP about any major findings or changes throughout your stay.
  • After you leave the hospital, you will return to your PCP for follow-up care.
  • The hospital medicine team will send your PCP a report of hospital diagnoses, treatments, and medications.
  • The hospital medicine team may prescribe medication you need to take after discharge; your PCP will refill these medications when necessary.
