The Admission & Management (A&M) Hospitalist
Service is a team of licensed, board-certified
physicians who specialize in the treatment of hospitalized
patients. Their experience and expertise in hospital medicine
are pivotal to the timely, exceptional care provided to
inpatients at Adventist Medical Center.
A&M hospitalists are available for care on-site 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year. This allows them to closely monitor
patients, follow up on tests promptly, and respond quickly if
there is an emergency. They also work together with
specialists, outpatient physicians, and other members of the
patient care team to ensure comprehensive coverage and
continuity of care. That is why more than 170 primary care
providers from Adventist Health Medical Group and the
surrounding community trust the care of their hospitalized
patients to the Admission & Management Hospitalist Service.
Established in 1995, the A&M Hospitalist
Service was one of the first hospital medicine
programs in the State of Oregon. Today, the practice continues
to grow. Our team of thirteen hospitalists includes
board-certified internists and family medicine physicians, all
trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). Daily staffing
consists of five day-shift physicians, one swing-shift
physician, and one night-shift physician.
Our hospitalists serve on a variety of hospital committees and
frequently take an active role in developing initiatives to
enhance quality of care throughout the hospital. They are also
committed to professional development through regular
attendance at regional and national conferences and
participation in continuing medical education programs.
