Baptist Golden Triangle adds two new hospitalists
Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle recently announced the addition of Drs. Brad Brown and James Woodard to its staff of hospitalists. Brown and Woodard both come to the staff from Internal Medicine Associates PC of Columbus.
Brown received his medical degree from the University of Mississippi Medical School in Jackson and completed his residency in internal medicine at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. He is board certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine and joined Baptist Golden Triangle''s medical staff in 1987.
Woodard received his medical degree from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham, Ala., and completed his residency in internal medicine at Carraway Methodist Medical Center in Birmingham. He is board certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians. Woodard joined Baptist Golden Triangle''s medical staff in 1988.
Hospitalists are physicians who work in the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because these physicians spend their entire time at Baptist Golden Triangle, they are always available for admissions and emergencies. They take care of patients in the same manner a primary care physician might, including ordering treatments, and tests and consulting with specialty physicians when needed. Once a patient is discharged, the care returns to the patient''s primary care physician or internist. Hospital-based physicians are accessible to patients and their families, and they are in contact with each patient''s primary care physician on a daily basis.
