Who Will Take Care of Me?
Hospitalists are primary care doctors who specialize in caring for patients while they are in the hospital. Their practice is located within Grand View Hospital and is available to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They only see hospitalized patients and do not have outpatient medical offices. These physicians have strong backgrounds in general and critical care medicine. After you are discharged, they will work with your primary care doctor on your post-discharge care.
Intensivists (Critical-Care Specialists)
Grand View Hospital provides hospitalized patients with seven-day-a-week care by physicians who specialize in intensive care medicine. These board-certified physicians exclusively treat seriously ill or injured patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Intensivists, also known as critical care specialists, are skilled at identifying complications that may arise and at taking further action before conditions worsen.
Grand View Hospital has private and semi-private patient rooms. Prior to admission, you may indicate your preference, and every effort will be made to accommodate you. However, alternative arrangements may be necessary at times due to high patient volume or your physician’s orders.
Please contact your nurse if the temperature in your room is uncomfortable, or if you have any questions or concerns that arise during your hospital stay. We sincerely hope that your stay with us will be as comfortable as possible, and that we will be successful in meeting your health-care and other related needs.
