New hospitalists join SNMH team
The Union

Being a patient in the hospital can sometimes feel unsettling; in addition to coping with an illness or injury, patients face the additional task of adjusting to an unfamiliar environment and the new faces caring for them. One of the ways that hospitals help to make a patient’s care more cohesive and comfortable is through the use of hospitalists — doctors who are specially trained to care for patients while they are in the hospital.

At Dignity Health Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital (SNMH), hospitalists have been caring for patients for more than a decade.  Recently, the hospitalist team expanded with the addition of four new hospitalists, with another new member expected to start in January.
