Your Hospital Team
The Medical Staff
An attending physician who plans your treatment, records your history and progress, and keeps your referring physician informed of their findings and recommendations directs your medical care. Questions regarding your illness or treatment plan should be directed to your attending physician.
The Nursing Staff
Nursing care is provided around-the-clock by a team of professional registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and nurse assistants. A nursing director is responsible for directing and coordinating nursing care for their unit. Please feel free to contact your nurse or nursing director if you have any questions or concerns.
Registered dietitians are available to ensure that patients receive the types of foods they need to aid in their recovery. A registered dietitian will work with you on an inpatient or outpatient basis to help you understand the diet restrictions you may need to follow at home. If you have any questions, please call 2670 if you are in the hospital or 434.315.2670 from outside the hospital.
