Middletown, NY — Orange Regional Medical Group (ORMG) is pleased to announce the addition of four new physicians to its Department of Hospital Medicine. These physicians will provide hospitalist services to Orange Regional Medical Center (ORMC) inpatients.
A hospitalist is a hospital-based physician who is a Board-certified internist who cares solely for hospitalized patients. They see hospitalized patients have been referred by primary care doctors, emergency room doctors or other physicians at the hospital.
A patient’s primary care physician and the ORMG hospitalist work together. At the time of admission and discharge, the hospitalist provides a detailed report of findings and treatment plans that can be sent to patient’s primary physician.
Hospitalists devote all their time to hospitalized patients and can be at a patient’s bedside in minutes. However, a patient’s care is returned to his or her primary care physician upon discharge from the hospital.
Orange Regional Medical Group’s new hospitalist physicians are:
Annie Lee, M.D.
