The Hospitalist Service provides inpatient care for established patients of the Siteman Cancer Center. Patients with cancer who are admitted to Parkview Tower are cared for in a collaborative care model with a hospitalist and medical oncologist. Our physicians work closely with cancer physicians to provide exceptional patient care. Our multi-disciplinary teams consist of hospitalists, hematologist/oncologists, nurse practitioners, inpatient nurse coordinators, research study coordinators, dieticians, case managers, and social workers. We also work closely with our patients’ primary outpatient oncologist to ensure a smooth transition between care in the inpatient and outpatient setting.
In addition to treating general internal medicine needs of this unique patient population, our physicians gain experience in treating patients enrolled in clinical trials, undergoing stem cell transplantations, and immune and cellular therapies.
