Specialties

Always There With Coordinated Care

Welcome to Hospital Medicine at Crystal Run. Crystal Run Healthcare hospitalists are internists (specialists in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases) who partner with other hospital physicians to ensure you get the care you need. They are familiar with every aspect of the hospital. For this reason, hospitalists accept full responsibility for your care during your hospital stay, can streamline your tests and consultations, and quickly manage problems to shorten the time you must be in the hospital.

Crystal Run Healthcare has developed a robust Hospital Medicine program using board certified Internal Medicine physicians who are dedicated to caring for hospitalized patients. Currently working at Orange Regional Medical Center, Catskill Regional Medical Center, and St. Anthony Community Hospital, our hospitalists communicate frequently with your primary care provider, have access to Crystal Run Healthcare specialists if you need specialized medical or surgical care while hospitalized, and ensure timely follow-up and smooth care transitions when you are discharged.

The Hospitalist can quickly notify your primary care provider of hospital admissions and discharges through a shared Electronic Health Record (EHR) and will stay in frequent communication with your PCP. When you are discharged, details of your treatment become part of your EHR.

 

Your Crystal Run Healthcare Hospitalist Will in Most Cases

  • Admit you to the hospital.
  • Serve as attending provider while you are hospitalized.
  • Visit you daily to monitor your progress.
  • Answer questions for you and your family.
  • Coordinate care with your primary care provider, hospital staff, and other members of your Crystal Run Healthcare team.
  • Arrange for diagnostic procedures and tests.
  • Order additional care, such as physical therapy and rehabilitation, dietary consultation, care management, or spiritual care.
  • Develop your discharge plan when you are well enough to be discharged.
  • Provide a discharge summary to your primary care provider, with detailed information on your hospital stay, through your shared Electronic Health Record.
  • Help ensure that you receive all the after-hospital care you need.

 

Care Coordination

An important part of Crystal Run Healthcare’s Hospital Medicine program is the transition back to primary care. Your hospitalist will ensure timely followup and a seamless transition of care following your hospital discharge. A Crystal Run Healthcare transition coordinator (also located in the hospital) will assist with scheduling followup appointments with specialists or your primary care physician and will work with the hospital case manager to coordinate needs such as medical equipment and home care.

For those with chronic medical conditions like diabetes, hypertension, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), congestive heart failure, or coronary artery disease, your transition coordinator will set you up with a Crystal Run Healthcare care manager. Your care manager will coordinate your post discharge followup care as they follow your progress closely and communicate with your primary care physician and other care team members. Your care manager will also help coordinate your appointments, help you refill your maintenance prescriptions, and can refer you to many community resources.
