A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in treating hospitalized patients. At Upstate University Hospital Downtown Campus, hospitalists concentrate on the unique aspects of patient care during their stay.

  • Professional 24-hour care by highly trained physicians experienced in the specialized area of inpatient hospital care.
  • Prompt follow up of tests and adjustment of your treatment regimen throughout the day as needed.
  • Intense focus on patient education.
  • Convenient and timely access to hospitalist staff for medical treatment and family conferences.
