The Inpatient Services department offers a healing environment for you to receive inpatient care delivered by experienced nurses and board certified physicians in the comfort of your own private room. The Inpatient Services team provides expert care to patients with a wide variety of conditions.
The care of inpatients is managed by a Hospitalist. A Hospitalist is a physician who is dedicated to overseeing the care of patients while they are hospitalized. Because the Hospitalist is available full-time, the physician is able to quickly respond to test results and changes in patient condition. Patients and family members also have more access to speak with the Hospitalist and ask questions about their care.
Hospitalists have a great understanding of, and experience with a variety of medical conditions and work closely with other medical specialists, including surgeons. The Hospitalist’s close presence benefits patients by reducing their length of stay, increasing communication between caregivers and improving patient outcomes.
In addition, CentraCare Health - Monticello's Inpatient Services department offers transitional services such as Swing Beds to help patients smoothly move from inpatient care to the comfort of their home.
