For Immediate Release November 2, 2011
Memorial Hospital welcomes Shawn Sultan, MD, Hospitalist/Internal Medicine physician, to the Memorial Medical Staff. Hospitalists specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. Dr. Sultan received his bachelor’s degree from Johns Hopkins University in economics. He received his Doctor of Medicine and completed his Internal Medicine residency at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
A hospitalist is located in the hospital and can respond to patients’ needs almost immediately. In addition to providing care, hospitalists organize the communication between different doctors caring for a patient, and serve as the point of contact for other doctors and nurses for questions, updates, and delineating a comprehensive plan of care.
