The Hospitalist Program includes a team of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester providers that specialize specifically in the care of hospitalized patients at Catholic Medical Center.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock hospitalists at CMC are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hospitalists communicate with a patient's primary care physician about medical history, medications and plan of care. The hospitalist also contacts a patient's primary care provider if there are any major changes in their medical status or treatment. When a patient is discharged, the hospitalist provides them with discharge instructions and arranges for any prescriptions they need. For follow-up treatment of their condition, the patient is encouraged to make an appointment with their primary care provider.

The system includes hundreds of physicians, specialists, and other providers who work together at different locations to meet the health care needs of patients in northern New England.
