For hospitalized patients, NRMC hospitalists coordinate care for many patients within the hospital setting. Trained especially in acute care medicine, these highly skilled physicians ensure the medical needs of each patient are met during the hospital stay. From diagnosis to treatment, hospitalists coordinate the whole patient experience and may see a patient several times during a 24 hour period based on a patient's needs. They encourage questions and want each patient to fully understand their diagnosis and care plan. Leading a multidisciplinary team, they work closely with any physician specialists needed, a patient's primary care physician(s), the nursing team, imaging department, laboratory and other hospital departments as needed.

There are some members of the medical staff that are facility based and bill separately from the hospital for the services that they provide.
