Hospital Medicine

Certain chemotherapy regimens require inpatient support. You may also be in the hospital for chemotherapy-related complications or complications related to your cancer. We know that being hospitalized can be stressful for you and your family. We are committed to helping make this experience as positive as possible and want to work with you to ensure that you get the best and most appropriate care.

If you are hospitalized, it is likely that you will be under the direct care of a Hospital Medicine physician or be seen by one in consultation during your hospitalization. The Department of Hospital Medicine is a team of physicians within the Department of Internal Medicine that specializes in taking care of hospitalized patients. If necessary during the course of your hospitalization, we work closely with your primary physician and subspecialist physicians to coordinate and direct your overall care. We also work as a team, and you may be seen by different members of our group at different times during your hospital course.
