Convenient Care at Rome Health Medical Center
We know that sometimes medical needs arise before you have a chance to make an appointment with your primary care physician. For times like this, we created Convenient Care. Convenient Care is available to Rome Health Medical Center patients whenever a same-day appointment with your physician is unavailable. Providers are available for Convenient Care services Monday through Friday.
When You’re in the Hospital
To provide you with the very best care during your hospital stay at Rome Health, your primary care physician has entrusted a hospitalist from St. Joseph's Hospital to be your “in-hospital” doctor.
Hospitalists are physicians who work solely in the hospital and are available throughout your stay to talk with you and your family about your care and treatment.
In case of emergency, your hospitalist is never very far. That’s because he or she works only in the hospital and will see you more than once a day if needed. Hospitalists expedite your care by following up on tests and adjusting your treatment regimen throughout the day based on those test results.
At the time of your admission to the hospital, the hospitalist will review your medical records and may contact your primary care physician to discuss your condition. During the course of your hospitalization, the hospitalist and primary care physician may talk further regarding your treatment, and at discharge, the hospitalist will communicate with your primary care physician to discuss your further treatment needs, help arrange follow-up care, and prescribe the necessary medications.
Your primary care physician will have access to all your records following your stay.
Please let us know if you have a hearing, visual or physical impairment, or if you will need translation services. Always feel comfortable to bring a family member, friend or health advocate to your appointments.
