Hospitalists work as part of the healthcare team to ensure patients and families receive the best information and care during an inpatient stay. Hospitalists are in the hospital 24 hours a day so that they can be responsive to patient needs and family concerns. Your hospitalist team will follow up on tests, adjust treatment schedules as needed and maintain communication with your doctor.

In addition to specialized knowledge of acute hospital care, hospitalists are familiar with specialists and departments within the hospital so that they can effectively assist patients with a smooth and speedy recovery process. Research has shown that Hospitalist Programs may improve the efficiency of hospital care, with shorter lengths of stay and better outcomes.

The hospitalist program at Logansport Memorial Hospital is staffed by two full-time internal medicine physicians and two full-time nurse practitioners. Learn more about them.


I never have to wait to get answers from my care team nurse. She is my 'go-to' person and pulls it all together for me.
