Our inpatient physicians, also known as hospitalists, are a part of a team of providers who focus exclusively on treating hospitalized patients. That means our inpatients have access to a dedicated provider 24/7 throughout their hospital stay.
Inpatient physicians are skilled in diagnosing and treating the broad range of diseases and conditions that might cause you to be hospitalized. These providers oversee all aspects of your care - consulting with specialists, ordering tests and treatments, and monitoring your response. When you're ready for discharge, our inpatient physicians help make sure your primary care physician and other providers have the information they need so your can can continue uninterrupted.
For patients with chronic or high-risk conditions, we provide additional support and follow-up care through our Inpatient Transition Program. True to its name, the program helps inpatients transition back home - and stay there.
Inpatient care is provided by the 30+ members of Saratoga Hospital Medical Group - Inpatient Medicine. These physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants work hand in hand with specialty physicians and our exceptional nursing team. Together they provide the expertise, commitment, and compassionate, personalized care that are the hallmark of Saratoga Hospital.
“Although many hospital stays are planned, some patients start their day not knowing they’ll end up here. Whether your stay is planned or a suprise, our team of highly trained, compassionate hospitalists is here for them every step of the way, even when they are feeling at their most vulnerable. We're here 24/7 to help you get better and return home safe and sound.”

Our Inpatient Transition Program helps adult patients with chronic or high-risk conditions successfully transition from hospital to home. The program provides a temporary "medical home" for one to two visits until patients can be seen by their primary care providers. The inpatient transition team uses that time to assess patients, help them update and organize their medications, schedule appointments with specialists, and arrange for in-home support services. Because family members often are involved in patient care, they are encouraged to attend these follow-up visits.
The hospitalist provides care throughout the patient’s stay in the hospital, answering questions and following through on the treatment, making adjustments as needed for each unique condition.
Temporary visitation restrictions, while necessary, can add to family members' concerns when a loved one is hospitalized. To ease that burden, our inpatient transition team checks on patients and calls family members with updates on their loved one's condition and the steps Saratoga Hospital is taking to ensure their safety and provide the best possible care.
Our hospitalists coordinate with the patient’s primary or specialty care physician, making sure the patient’s team of providers is informed and consulted as needed.
