Hospital Internal Medicine (HIM) features several services specific to its practice that may be called upon as patient needs dictate:
Medical Consultative Service
All preoperative evaluations and postoperative consultations at the Methodist Campus are completed by physicians to enhance the level of service provided to the requesting surgical teams and to ensure continuity of care throughout the patient's experience.
Hospital Internal Medicine
This service aims to provide the best overall care to geriatric, orthopedic, and medical inpatients by using an organized, multidisciplinary
teamworkapproach that is guided by evidenced-based practice, outcome measurements andpatient-oriented research.
The service is targeted at specific patient segments who can benefit from it most, such as complex surgical patients (e.g., hip fracture patients), nonsurgical orthopedic patients, complex medical patients (e.g., nephrology patients), and patients awaiting nursing home placement. The partnership with surgical teams to enhance geriatric perioperative care also includes urology patients.
