Division of Hospital Medicine

The Division of Hospital Medicine provides high-quality, evidence-based care only for hospitalized patients. 

In addition to providing excellent inpatient care, the division promotes a seamless transition from the hospital to outpatient follow up with a primary care physician.  

  • Patients admitted to Rush University Medical Center who are either seen in an affiliated internal medicine clinic or who do not have a Rush-affiliated primary care physician will be under the care of a hospitalist physician if admitted to a general medicine service at Rush. 
  • Hospitalists provide multidisciplinary care through continuous contact with nursing, pharmacy, case management and social worker staff. 
  • The division provides consultation and co-management services for multiple nonmedical services throughout the medical center. 

Education/quality improvement 

The Division of Hospital Medicine is committed to the professional and academic development of its members. The division’s programming includes a monthly journal club, monthly joint hospital medicine grand rounds with the Division of Hospital Medicine at John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County, monthly faculty development workshop series and bimonthly operations meetings. Members attend regional and national meetings of the American College of Physicians, Society for General Internal Medicine and Society for Hospital Medicine.
