The Hospitalist Service provides inpatient care for established patients of the Siteman Cancer Center. Patients with known cancer history who are admitted to Parkview Tower are cared for in a collaborative care model with a Hospitalist serving as the primary inpatient physician and attending of record. Patients will also be seen by an inpatient Oncology team to assist with management of active oncology issues. The Hospitalist will serve as the primary coordinator for all inpatient issues as many patients require a number of specialty consultants.
These teams of providers will be in close contact with a patient’s primary outpatient oncologist to ensure a smooth transition between care in the inpatient and outpatient setting.
