Our goal for all patients at Mount Nittany Medical Center is high-quality, efficient care to get you back to your life.
High quality care means you and your family have a hospitalist in the Medical Center who has learned about you and will do his or her best to get you well and back home as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Specially trained in caring for patients needing inpatient care, hospitalists are focused on you to make sure you receive proper tests and procedures, and will follow up with your treatment plan throughout the day.
Since our hospitalists work at Mount Nittany Medical Center, patients can ask a nurse to page a hospitalist if they wish to speak to him or her.
Getting to Know You
As soon as you are admitted to Mount Nittany Medical Center, your hospitalist will spend time with you to go over your health records to gain as much information as possible to determine the best care for you.
At discharge, your hospitalist will send your inpatient information to your primary care physician for your records. If you do not have a primary care physician at the time of discharge, your hospitalist will refer you to one and will provide your inpatient information to that doctor.
It is important that patients follow up with the assigned primary care physician to ensure a safe and healthy recovery.
