Hospitalist Medicine at St. Mary High Desert Medical Group
In the past, patients would wait for their primary care physician to visit
once each day, either before or after office hours. Because our St. Mary
High Desert Medical Group hospitalists are onsite or immediately available
24/7, they round on patients as often as needed and are available to respond
to changes in a patient's condition. While a hospitalist takes the
lead when you are admitted to the hospital, it is a team effort with your
personal physician remaining informed and involved.
