If You Are Admitted To the Hospital


Effective January 1, 2008, we will be implementing a change that will have an impact on our patients who are admitted to the hospital. As of this date, the doctors at Burnsville Family Physicians will no longer be admitting our patients to the hospital, or handling their care during a stay at the hospital. These services will now be provided by a group of physicians called "hospitalists".

Hospitalists are physicians whose primary focus is the general medical care of a hospitalized patient. Hospital medicine is a specialty, organized around the site where the care is being provided (the hospital), rather than the treatment of a specific illness or injury. Hospitalists manage patients throughout the course of their hospital stay. This includes seeing the patient in the ER, admitting the patient, following the patient throughout their stay as well as organizing discharge and post-hospital care. The hospitalist communicates all information regarding a patient's hospital stay back to the patient's primary care physician.

Burnsville Family Physicians believes that by utilizing hospitalists, the overall quality care of their patient's hospital stay will be improved, as the hospitalists are on-site at the hospital 24 hours a day. Utilizing hospitalists is clearly the trend in hospital medicine within the community.

The doctors at Burnsville Family Physicians remain dedicated to providing high quality care to each of our patients. We look forward to working together in partnership with you and our hospitalists to ensure your health and well-being.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this decision, please address them with your physician.
