Adult Hospitalists

The Adult Hospitalist team consists of board-certified internists under the direction of Rodney Ashir, MD and Jiyon Chung, MD. Hospitalists serve as primary care providers for patients who are admitted to WPH but do not have a primary care provider on the Hospital's medical staff. In addition, private physicians affiliated with the Hospital have requested that the Adult Hospitalist Program care for their patients that require hospital admission. Hospitalists also respond to calls for assistance for any inpatient and serve as team leaders for both the Cardiac Arrest and Rapid Response Teams.
