Hospital Medicine Locations
Hospital Medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon, NH serves the inpatient medical needs of the local medical community and regional referring hospitals.
Hospitalists work in teams. Often you will meet two or more of our physicians during your hospitalization. These physicians are well informed of your medical history and current status and will meet with you and your family to discuss the issues of your hospitalization.
Specifically, hospitalists provide daily updates. They discuss with you any lab and study results, the proposed duration of the hospital stay, changes in medications and specific needs on discharge from DHMC, and needs for additional studies and follow up. The team will also convey this information to your primary care physician.
