Hospital Medicine, Department of Medicine
During your stay at Danbury Hospital, a doctor known as a Hospitalist will manage your treatment plan and ensure that you receive the highest level of care. Hospitalists are physicians who are board-certified in internal medicine and specialize in the care of hospitalized patients.
The Hospitalist team utilizes the various resources in the hospital to develop and implement your treatment plan toward a smooth recovery. They also involve specialists in your care plan as needed.
At Danbury Hospital, Hospitalists are available on-site to continuously monitor your treatment and make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our Hospitalists are also board-certified and/or trained in palliative medicine and end-of-life care. We help patients with chronic, life-limiting illnesses manage symptoms and pain, and help them transition to hospice care when necessary.
