Inpatient Care Overview

  • Brett Glotzbecker, MD, with another staff member

    If your cancer treatment includes inpatient hospitalization, your care will be led by our medical oncology hospitalists (also called attending physicians or attendings) will manage your hospital care.

    Our hospitalists, who are medical oncologists dedicated solely to inpatient care, work in multidisciplinary teams with nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, and other medical specialists – and every team member is focused on your needs throughout your hospital stay.

    Coordinating closely with your primary medical oncologist, your medical oncology hospitalist and team will manage day-to-day issues while you are hospitalized, such as any medical complications that may arise from cancer or cancer treatment.

    You can have peace of mind knowing that your inpatient oncology team will make any decisions about your care goals and treatment plan in close collaboration with your primary medical oncologist.
