Family Medicine

Hospital Service

Our family medicine services don’t end in our clinics. Our physicians offer complete care if you are admitted into the hospital for whatever reason. If your primary care provider is one of our family physicians you will be admitted into Jennie Sealy Hospital on the Family Medicine Hospital Service.

Our service has 16 beds, and is staffed by a team of 4 faculty physicians, 1 Physician Assistant, attentive nursing staff and a full-time patient care facilitator. Patients are checked into the Family Medicine Service through emergency room admitting, as a result of a clinic visit or from our nursing home service at the Gulf Coast Health Care Center.

By offering full hospital services to our patients we are able to offer you the benefits of a complete medical home. In being treated in the hospital by a family medicine physician, you are being seen by a physician who is in direct contact with your primary care provider and they will coordinate your care together. In addition, if specialty care providers are needed, our physicians will coordinate that care while remaining your health care team leader. With our Family Medicine Hospital Service, your primary care doctor will be part of your care team and ready to continue your care after your hospital stay.
