Our Services

Bay Area Hospitalist Associates are your partner in the hospital. A BAHA physician will lead your team of providers to ensure you receive high-quality, compassionate and coordinated care throughout your stay. We will work with your primary care provider and specialist physicians so that everyone is informed and in agreement with the treatment plan. Our care will be centered on you.

So what exactly is a hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a staff physician who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients. With a hospitalist, you'll benefit from personalized attention, and you'll gain peace of mind knowing there is a physician on staff who's familiar with your medical history and care.

After you are admitted to the hospital, one of our hospitalist physicians will give you an examination and will coordinate and administer any tests and treatments you may need during your hospital stay.

To ensure seamless care, your primary care doctor will share your health records and information with one of our hospitalists. This information includes your current health condition, medical history, treatment preferences and Advance Directives if you have one on file. This document details your medical treatment wishes if you should be unable to speak from yourself.

To reach your hospitalist, or the team of physicians taking care of you in the hospital, ask your nurse for assistance.
