Hospital Medicine

The Division of Hospital Medicine at UK HealthCare exemplifies how hospitalists can lead education, research in quality improvement, and clinical care at an Academic Medical Center. As experts in hospital-based patient care, hospitalists at UK provide exceptional inpatient care and coordinate the management of their complex medical issues. The Division of Hospital Medicine brings together the significant academic and clinical resources of the University of Kentucky and UK HealthCare with a talented, dedicated group of hospitalists and staff.

Our more than 60 hospitalists include nationally recognized leaders in medical education, quality improvement, and health services research. Together, we seek to promote inter-professional collaboration and effective communication to improve the quality of patient care. Our patient-centered, teamwork-based approach is transforming care delivery aiming to provide the highest value to our patients.
