What is a Hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in the practice of hospital medicine.

Following medical school, hospitalists typically undergo residency training in general internal medicine, general pediatrics, or family practice, but may also receive training in other medical disciplines.

Most medical centers in the United States, including Sherman Oaks Hospital, now put patients under the care of the hospitalist while they are in the hospital setting. Hospitalists tend to navigate the hospital system better and are likely to be more skilled in the management of acute conditions that get patients admitted into the hospital.

What makes our program unique at Sherman Oaks Hospital?

The Epic Medical Group provides excellent hospital care from the time a patient is admitted until discharge. Their dedication and commitment to quality care includes in-patient hospital services and extends to medical care out into the surrounding community.

Skilled nursing facilities, assisted livings, and board & care homes are critical partners in the health and well-being of many patients. Epic Medical Group physicians, following a hospital stay, are available to provide "continuum of care" services to patients. Epic Medical Group internists focus on core measures, efficiency and quality. Delivering "continuum of care" service to their patients, strengthen relations between patient, family and doctor.
