Holy Family Hospital in Methuen and Holy Family Hospital at Merrimack Valley in Haverhill provide a hospitalist service to support our commitment to exceptional in-patient care.
A hospitalist is a physician who provides medical care to patients during their hospital stay. Hospitalists are on site at the hospital seven days a week to provide you with ongoing and immediate care. They work as partners with your physician to provide you with the highest standard of care during your hospital stay.
You will retain your primary care physician. Upon referral from your primary care physician, a hospitalist cares for you in the hospital while you are hospitalized. In some cases, if your doctor can not be reached, a hospitalist may also be called upon to evaluate and treat you in order to expedite your care. Communication between the hospitalist and your primary care physician will occur as needed during hospitalization, and complete information about your hospitalization will be submitted to your doctor upon discharge.
An important benefit of the hospitalist service is increased availability. Your hospitalist is here to explain and respond in person to you and your family. During critical and stressful moments your hospitalist will be there to provide timely, honest, and considerate answers to all your questions.
