Program: Rotarian Dr. Manasi Nadkarni gave an informative program on the Hospitalists at Unitypoint Health here in Muscatine!!  A Hospitalist is the Doctor who coordinates care of patients while in the hospital alleviating the patient's doctor from doing hospital rounds in addition to their office practice.  There are 4 hospitalists here and all have a internal medicine or family medical background. This enables a 24/7 availability for patients and their doctor while in the hospital.  Benefits include coordination of care and better communication within the hospital.  The doctors work from 7-7.  The hospitalist usually cares for 15-20 patients at one time.  When you depart the hospital your care returns to your own doctor!!
