Hospital Medicine

As experts in hospital-based medicine, members of the Division of Hospital Medicine work exclusively with hospitalized patients therefore ensuring efficient and safe care of multiple complex medical problems.  We work in a collaborative manner with other members of the healthcare team to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive healthcare throughout their hospitalization.  We also work closely with the patient’s primary care physician to ensure safe transitions from admission to discharge.

As the field of Hospital Medicine is at the forefront of improving patient safety and quality of care measures, Loyola University Hospitalists are actively involved in various initiatives focusing on these measures such as medication reconciliation, electronic medical records improvement, and inpatient anticoagulation protocols.

Loyola University Medical Center Hospitalists also work very closely with our Internal Medicine Residency program.  We are an integral part of the training program of our medical students and residents through our dedicated Hospitalist teaching service.  Using the Society of Hospital Medicine Core Curriculum guidelines, our Hospitalists focus on areas critical to being successful in the field of hospital medicine.

Loyola University Medical Center employs 26 full-time Hospitalists and dedicated nocturnists, ensuring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week attendance to patients’ needs.  Our highly educated, energetic, and skilled group of hospitalists is dedicated to the growth of the exciting field of hospital medicine.  We aim to be a premiere academic hospital medicine program in the area.
