Section of Hospital Medicine

The Section of Hospital Medicine has been consistently growing since 2015. What started with four physicians has now grown to over twenty physicians and advanced practice providers.

Hospitalists care for patients admitted to Saint Louis University Hospital on the general medicine service as well as care for patients on the general medicine consult service. We provide the highest quality medical care for our patients at Saint Louis University Hospital. In addition to their clinical work, the Section focuses on excellence in education and quality improvement.

Our faculty members are leaders at the highest levels within SLUCare, the academic medical practice of Saint Louis University, as well as leaders within the School of Medicine. The attention to service and upholding the Jesuit mission is seen in our daily work with patients along with in the education of our Internal Medicine residents and medicine students.
