"Floyd III, Leroy Cordero"MIDDLETOWN, NY (Apr. 8, 2024) — Garnet Health Doctors has increased its hospitalist team to 46 providers, who care for inpatients at Garnet Health Medical Center and Garnet Health Medical Center – Catskills.

Hospitalists are board-certified internists and family practitioners whose core expertise is the care and safety of hospitalized patients. They work with other specialists to guide all major aspects of treatment during a patient’s hospital stay, from admission to discharge. 

Hospitalists at Garnet Health are experts in managing the complexities of inpatient care. They are adept at coordinating treatment plans, working with multidisciplinary teams and navigating the intricacies of the hospital environment.

“A hospitalist is a crucial member of a patient’s care team,” remarked Leroy Cordero Floyd III, MD, Garnet Health’s chief clinical transformation officer. “The addition of 12 hospitalists across our health system allows patients faster access to the same high-quality care. With more hospitalists on staff 24 hours every day, they are more easily accessible, ensuring all patients have the best possible experience in our hospitals.”

Hospitalists specialize in managing the day-to-day care of hospitalized patients. They facilitate collaboration and communication with all care team members within the hospital, respond to emergencies, are there when questions arise, and are a key component in preparing patients for discharge and their return to their primary care provider.
