The new deal will provide the hospital with a group of hospitalists each day.
A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in treating hospitalized patients. The hospitalists will coordinate the care of patients with their primary physician and communicate between different doctors and nurses who are caring for a patient.
Officials with the hospital say the addition of these new physicians will help increase efficiency and provide the best care for patients.
There is a plan in place to transition care for all inpatients to the hospitalist program over the next several months.
