About the CSHP Hospitalist Program
In keeping with our commitment to excellence, Colorado Springs Health Partners has a Hospitalist Program to enhance the continuity of care and comfort for our patients. A Hospitalist is a physician whose primary focus is to provide the general medical care for patients while they are in the hospital. CSHP hospitalist physicians are board-certified in Internal or Family Medicine, and are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What is a Hospitalist?
A hospitalist is a physician who provides general medical care for patients while they are in the hospital. They stay abreast of current regulations, technology and treatment regimen changes in the hospital setting. In addition, they communicate with the patient's primary care physician about treatment protocol and assist with timely discharge from the hospital.


CSHP Hospitalist Staff
CSHP's hospitalist staff includes full-time hospitalist physicians and a rotating team of CSHP primary care physicians. Once admitted to the hospital, a CSHP hospitalist will take over your care and communicate with your primary care physician. Upon discharge, your care will return back to your primary care physician. When it is necessary for you to go to the hospital:

  • You will be seen by a CSHP Hospitalist. CSHP Hospitalists take hospital call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Your primary care physician will be notified of your hospital stay.
  • The CSHP Hospitalist staff will communicate with your primary care physician.
  • Our Hospitalist staff will coordinate your care with any other specialists that are needed to take care of you in the hospital.
  • CSHP will assist in arranging for additional care you may need upon discharge from the hospital.

Call your physician's office if you think you need to be cared for at the hospital.

 

What is a SNF?

 A skilled nursing facility, or SNF, is a place that provides care for patients who are not yet ready to return home after a hospital stay. They offer long and short-term care for patients with serious or chronic health conditions or who need rehabilitation services. CSHP’s health care providers have  recommended that you be transferred to a skilled nursing facility for additional care  so that you can make a smooth transition home when you are ready.
