Hospital services The surgical hospitalist program was created to handle emergent consults and operations in the middle of the workday so as to not conflict with the on-call general surgeon’s previous commitments to elective clinic and elective operations.

The advantages of this hospital-based surgeon include consults seen in a timely fashion and operated on without delay due to conflicts with elective scheduling.

Services include:

  • Providing an immediate point person to discuss urgent consults and potential referrals and transfers with general surgical problems.
  • Providing Level II trauma coverage and overseeing of the care of a multiple injury patient
  • Freeing up the other general surgeons in the practice to see elective consults (i.e., patients with breast cancer) in a more timely fashion
