The Hospital Medicine Team at Northwest Hospital is focused on clinical care of a diverse group of patients in a vibrant, collaborative community setting. Our hospitalist team attends on patients with general medicine, critical care, orthopedic, neurologic, and cardiac conditions. At any given time, the hospitalist team at Northwest is involved in the care of about 80% of patients at Northwest. We are highly engaged in quality improvement and process improvement project and take a leadership role in creating hospital care teams that work as collaborative, supportive, and well-informed units. While our primary focus is on direct clinical care of patients, there is some opportunity to teach medical students at Northwest.
