Our physicians have made arrangements with a well-respected hospitalist group in Memphis whom they trust to take care of their patients if they need to be hospitalized. Baptist Memorial Hospital and Methodist Germantown are aware of these arrangements.
The Emergency Departments of these hospitals know to contact this hospitalist group to admit our patients if hospitalization is needed. The physicians are notified of their patients who have been admitted.
