Benefits of Using General Medicine’s Post-Hospitalist/SNFist Program

  • Assist facilities with census – referrals of new patients.
  • Simplify the process of transitioning patients between inpatient hospitals, post-acute facilities and homebound settings.
  • Improve resident health outcomes.
  • Frequency of visits and the high visibility of our clinicians provides confidence that patients’ medical needs are addressed immediately.
  • Effectively reduce the frequency of avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions.  As a result, hospital readmit rates are reduced, and hospital confidence is increased with the ability to care for their post-acute patients.
  • Reducing unnecessary ER usage.
  • Keeping the patient at the level of care that is least costly and risky.
  • Eliminating unnecessary health care expenditures via effective management of chronic disease states.



Exclusive focus of General Medicine’s Post-Hospitalist Medicine Practice sets us apart from other traditional post-acute practice models.
