Hospitalist Service

What is a hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a fully qualified medical doctor employed by a hospital to treat patients while they are hospitalized. These may be patients without a primary care physician or patients whose
primary care doctors have agreed that their care be assigned to a hospitalist.

Hospitalists copy reports and diagnoses to your primary care physician and consult with them by phone, fax or e-mail as needed to determine the most appropriate care for you.

An Overview

Hospitalist physicians are on site 24/7.

  • The hospitalist service accepts direct admissions, transfers and patients requiring the consulting services of an internist.
  • Upon discharge, patients are referred to their primary care physician for continued care.
  • Patient and referring physician satisfaction surveys are conducted quarterly to improve our service.

The Hospitalist Team

Our team consists of ten physicians, a nurse practitioner, a physician assistant and two nurse directors. The nurse directors coordinate and manage daily operations, provide case management and coordination of services and support the communication continuum and billing process.

Team members:

  • Stephen Epperson, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Morgan Moncada, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Janet Meckley, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Windel Stracener, M.D. Hospitalist
  • David DeSantis, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Ahmad Jadaan, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Arthur Loquias, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Gloria Alano, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Angie Lee, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Andrew Maigur, M.D. Hospitalist
  • Cherie Frame, ACNP Nurse Practitioner
  • Tracy Reese, PA-C Physician Assistant
  • Carrie Gettinger, RN, BSN Nurse Director
  • Billie Joy, RN, BSN Nurse Director

The Communication Process

Referring physicians automatically receive an admission notification and a discharge summary.

Referring physicians may request additional communication from the hospitalist team throughout the patient's stay and may specify their preference of specialist consultants for their patients.
