Hospital Medicine Program (Hospitalist)

Hospitalists are medical professionals who specialize in the medical care of hospitalized patients. They do not see patients outside of the hospital. Our team focuses exclusively on managing the care of hospitalized patients 16 years and older. 

The Hospital Medicine Program at Blessing Hospital is partnered with Cogent Healthcare. Your Cogent Care Team is dedicated to providing high quality care with compassion and service excellence.

Your primary care provider may request the services of a Blessing Hospitalist to care for you while you are in the hospital. Although he/she entrusts your care to a hospitalist, your provider remains available for consultation and is kept informed of your admission, discharge and any change in your condition during your hospital stay.

After discharge from the hospital, you will be seen by your regular provider.

If you have questions regarding our hospital medicine program, please contact the program manager at 217-223-8400, ext. 4431.
