    Expert Care During Your Hospital Stay

    While a patient at NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield or NorthBay VacaValley Hospital in Vacaville, your care may be managed by a hospitalist, a physician who specializes in caring for hospitalized patients.

    Working exclusively in a hospital setting, these physicians have extensive experience dealing with the unique needs of hospitalized patients. While your primary care physician may not always be available should you require hospital care, hospitalists are available at a moment’s notice to supervise emergency care and admissions. This approach not only helps prevent medical complications, but also often results in reduced hospital stays and lower out-of-pocket costs for patients.

    Hospitalists work closely with your primary care physician regarding your medical care. Regular updates and discharge communication insures that your transition from the hospital goes smoothly.
