Hospitalist Program

Hospitalist Program

Winn Parish Medical Center offers a Hospitalist program guaranteeing that a physician is on staff anytime you are admitted to our hospital or while you are a patient with us. A hospitalist works in association with your primary care physician to share information on treatment needs, options and to monitor the patient’s progress. Because they are in-hospital at all times, a hospitalist can interact with patients several times daily during the patient's stay. This not only helps better guide a patient's treatment program and care but also is of great benefit to the patient's family when they need information relating to their loved one's care and progress.

Our hospitalist program features:

  • 7 days a week physician coverage
  • Certified Internal Medicine and Family Medicine Physicians
  • Access to physician upon emergency admission
  • Availability to patient in medical crisis situation
  • Overall coordination of care while patient is in hospital
  • Consults with primary care physician or specialist upon discharge to better promote the continuum of patient care.
