A Hospitalist is a medical doctor who provides care to patients while they are in the hospital. A Hospitalist physician, in cooperation with your personal doctor, will take care of you during your hospital stay and will monitor your care 24 hours a day.
Your Hospitalist team includes well-respected and experienced physicians, all of whom specialize in Internal Medicine. Frederick Simpson, M.D., is the medical director of the program. All are specialists in internal medicine and have many years of experience treating patients in and out of the hospital. The Hospitalist program also includes a liaison, Linda Maurer, R.N., M.S.N., Vice President of Patient Care Services. She can be reached at 937-498-5383.
When you require hospitalization, your regular physician normally coordinates your admission with the Hospitalist. If you are treated and admitted through the emergency room, the Hospitalist will coordinate your care and treatment while you are hospitalized. The Hospitalist communicates with your primary care physician in either case, but handles your care during time spent in the hospital instead of your doctor. The Hospitalist will ensure that all medical history is received from your doctor and that all information about your medical condition needed is available to your doctor. The Hospitalist communicates directly with patients and their family members to make sure all treatments and care are understood throughout your stay at Wilson Memorial Hospital.

Hospitalists are very familiar with the hospital and its systems and functions, as well as the nurses and staff on the inpatient units. They provide quality, focused care to hospitalized patients. They are available for in-hospital patient care and can check on each patient’s progress as often as needed. Patients and family members have more access to Hospitalists since they are readily available. Each patient’s regular physician receives updates about treatments and progress on a regular basis while hospitalization occurs.
