Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants has been providing hospitalist services at North Suburban Hospital since 2014 and critical care services since 2015. Our group covers in-house 24 hours daily to ensure a physician is readily available for issues that may arise. We are board certified internal medicine and family medicine specialists who focus our practice on hospital based medicine. We work closely with emergency room physicians, other staff physicians, nurses, and hospital administrators to optimize your hospital stay. Our physicians work with the hospital staff to continue to optimize quality of care measures.
“Hospitalists” and “Intensivists” have expertise in the care of acutely ill hospitalized patients. Our doctors are present in the hospital 24 hours daily in order to be readily available to care for you or your loved ones. Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants have established relationships with many of our community physicians, and our goal is to be an extension of your primary care provider when you are hospitalized. Our group will communicate with your primary care provider in order to make the transition from inpatient care to outpatient care as seamless as possible.
Our physicians have maintained leadership roles on hospital committees such as “Quality Improvement”, “Medical Executive Committee”, and “Pharmacy and Therapeutics”. Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants have been instrumental in developing protocols which follow evidenced based national guidelines in order to maintain the highest level of patient care throughout the hospital. These are an example of some of the protocols that we have developed and implemented over the years:
