Your Healthcare Team

All healthcare providers will introduce themselves and inform you of their roles in your care. Please ask for their names if introductions are not made.

Nursing Staff

We use a patient-focused care approach. A skilled group of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, patient care technicians and assistants join other healthcare professionals to provide you with comprehensive care.

Private Physicians

Your physician, who has primary responsibility for your care, carefully directs your treatment plan. Other members of the staff work under his/her supervision to give you comprehensive care as well as therapeutic and diagnostic support. Your physician also may enlist the expertise of on-staff specialists or an immediately available house doctor.

Inpatient Team

Your Inpatient Team can include: hospitalists (physicians), intensivists, licensed practitioners, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. You may be cared for by a member of our Inpatient Team during your hospitalization. They work directly with your family physician to provide you with the highest quality medical care.
