Highpoint Health has partnered with TeamHealth to provide Hospitalist services for our inpatients. Hospital Medicine Physicians, better known as Hospitalists, work on-site to provide seven-day-a-week, around-the-clock care for hospitalized patients. Hospitalists work in addition to other practitioners, such as Emergency Department Physicians, who also provide 24/7 care.
TeamHealth's Hospitalists are dedicated entirely to providing care for patients while they are hospitalized. The TeamHealth Hospitalists work cooperatively with your primary care physician and/or specialist to see that the best possible care is provided while you are a patient at Highpoint Health. This allows for a continuous, seamless manner of care which may allow some patients to go home earlier.
Founded in 1979, TeamHealth is a national physician services group that provides outsourced emergency medicine, hospital medicine, anesthesia, orthopedic hospitalist, acute care surgery, obstetrics and gynecology hospitalist, urgent care, post-acute care and medical call center solutions to civilian and military hospitals, clinics, physician groups and post-acute care facilities nationwide.
