Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants is an established independent group of physicians trained in the subspecialties of internal medicine. Our doctors practice both inpatient medicine in a hospital setting and outpatient medicine in our clinics. Our group consists of specialized, board-certified physicians (known as hospitalists, intensivists, pulmonologists, and sleep disorder specialists) who have expertise in the care of acutely ill hospitalized patients.
Our doctors are present in hospitals 24 hours daily in order to be readily available to care for you or your loved ones. We are not employees of the hospital or your insurance plan. However, we contract with both to ensure timely care during your hospital stay. We work closely with hospital administration, ancillary staff, and other medical subspecialists in order to provide state-of-the-art care for our patients.
Examples of how our doctors are engaged within the hospital include:
- Round at least daily on each patient with a multidisciplinary team
- Monthly meetings with hospital administration on patient care issues
- Development of protocols for management of medical issues such as congestive heart failure and community acquired pneumonia
- Participation and leadership within the medical staff including participation on multiple committees
