The internal medicine program at CHS supports our mission through patient care that promotes health, restores well being and/or alleviates suffering.
The health care team is committed to practicing collaboratively to ensure excellence in care for our patients and families. Internal Medicine care-- while being a specialty in itself, with doctors skilled in handling even the most complicated patient conditions--supports many other sub-specialties like surgery, orthopedics, neurology, infection control.
When patients are admitted to the hospital it is often by the “Hospitalist” or Internal Medicine doctor who provides care for hospitalized patients—these specialized doctors work solely with patients in the hospital. The Hospitalist or Internal Medicine doctor will oversee all care and call in specialists as needed. In this way your care is efficiently coordinated, with restoring your health being the center focus for the entire health care team.
