Hospital Physicians

When admitted to Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital, a patient’s care is coordinated by a team of ‘hospitalist’ physicians. These physicians are on-site 24 x 7 closely monitoring any changes in patient conditions and adjusting care as needed. They work closely with the patient’s primary care physician and specialists. Benefits to patients and their families include:

  • First Priority: The hospital patients are the hospitalist physicians first and only priority.
  • On Site Care: Hospitalist physicians are on-site 24×7 to respond quickly to any changes in a patient’s condition.
  • Shorter Hospital Stays: Studies have shown that patients generally have shorter stays when their care is coordinated by a hospitalist physician.
  • Easy Access: With the hospitalist physician on-site, a patient and their family have more ready access to the physician ensuring their questions are answered promptly.
