Hospitalist Medicine

In addition to being a hospital that offers specialty care, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital provides excellent care for patients with all types of conditions – from common to complex – through our team of hospitalists. A hospitalist is an internal medicine doctor whose focus is on taking care of patients in the hospital.
