Neurohospitalist

A neurohospitalist is a provider who specializes in providing neurological care for patients while they are in the hospital.

When you require hospitalization for a neurological problem, your provider or an Emergency Department physician will coordinate your admission with a neurohospitalist. The neurohospitalists work closely with hospital staff to coordinate your care.
