In 2008 the Department of Critical Care Medicine assumed management of the hospitalist services at UPMC Passavant. Since then we have grown from three to twelve hospitalists with an average census of 60 patients. We currently cover inpatients at the main McCandless campus for 18 physician groups and at the Cranberry campus for 36 groups. We have a physician’s assistant who facilitates communication with primary care physicians and who calls every patient after discharge to help with medication issues and scheduling follow up visits.
