When will I see a Hospitalist?
Knox Community Hospital hospitalists make daily patient visits between 7 am and 7 pm and remain on-call throughout the night for emergency admissions. There is always a hospitalist in the building 24-hours a day. Patient visits are scheduled throughout the day ensuring that those with the most urgent medical needs are seen first.
Your hospitalist will be available to answer questions and discuss your care with you or your family at these times. Our team will always strive to provide timely communication and excellent customer service.
How will My Family (Primary Care) Doctor Know the Outcome of My Care?
A copy of your records will be sent to your doctor’s office upon discharge. If you do not have a primary care physician, we will work with you to find one that meets your needs.
