The Team - The Hospital
This team is close knit and collegial – they enjoy spending time outside of work together and rely on each other to create scheduling flexibility to spend time with family and have a sustainable career. The hospital administration is very supportive of our hospitalists. Giving you time to build relationships with patients and families.
Qualified candidates will be practicing physicians trained in internal medicine with a strong hospitalist/LTACH background. The Hospitalists work collaboratively with the multidisciplinary medical team to provide optimal care for medically complex patients requiring long term hospitalization.
“Long Term Acute Care Hospitals (LTACH) are an important part of the continuum of care for very sick patients. The LTACH offers patients highly skilled medical attention and time to heal beyond that which is typically not possible in the short-term acute care hospital. Colorado Acute Care Hospital and Sound Physicians are partnering to provide the highest quality long-term care. Sound Physicians in the short-term acute care hospitals and Sound Physicians at CACH coordinate closely to create seamless transfers of care between the short-term and the long-term acute care hospital to best manage the episode of care for these patients." -Scot Smith, MD
