If you're hospitalized at CGH Medical Center, your care may be directed by a hospitalist... a physician whose sole responsibility is the care of hospitalized patients, from the time they are admitted until the time they are discharged.
The hospitalist program was implemented in January of 2008. Our hospitalists include: Nancy Tran, MD, Joshua Ajjarapu, MD, Cordus Easington, MD, PhD, Greg Goska, MD, Kirsten Loverude, APN, FNP-BC, Ashok Maini, MD, Mia McDermott, APN, FNP-BC, Kalpesh Patel, MD and Navneesh Sharma, MD. "These physicians have the skills and expertise needed to meet the unique needs of hospitalized patients and their loved ones," said Dr. Paul Steinke, CEO. "Our hospitalist program is one more example of how CGH is always working to enhance patient care."
For patients, being treated by a hospitalist offers many advantages:
"Our hospitalists know that the key to providing quality care is excellent communication," said Steinke. "That's why they stay in close contact with your primary care physician throughout your stay."
