Welcome To General Medicine, The Post-Hospitalist Company
General Medicine is a collaborative practice of board-certified physicians and advanced nurse practitioners who specialize in the care of post-acute care patients in long-term care facilities. These post-hospitalists work exclusively in these facilities rather than in addition to their daily practices and hospital rounds.
This means no more waiting for return calls or facility visits that leave your nursing staff considering hospitalization when a resident’s condition is deteriorating. It also means our practitioners are available to make early assessments, take early interventions and monitor their efficacy on site.
Dedicated to quality care and reducing hospital readmissions
Our post-hospitalists have a 10-year documented average 30-day readmission rate of 10.4%. Between 2005 and 2014, facilities partnered with General Medicine, The Post-Hospitalist Company achieved a hospital readmission rate as low as 56% below than the national average. These numbers are compared to the national average 30-day readmission rate for dual-eligible beneficiaries.
Our practice was started in 1983, and today is recognized as the leading physician care model for post-acute care patients. We are an exclusive provider for many MCOs, ACOs and state health plans. We employ more than 300 clinical and support individuals who provide our specialized services in 14 states, with additional markets continuing to be developed.
