Hospital Medicine


The Department of Hospital Medicine at Kaiser Permanente Northwest specializes in the care of hospitalized adult patients. Our board-certified physicians provide care for our members when they are feeling sick and most vulnerable; admitting patients to the hospital, providing ongoing care, and arrange post hospitalization follow up when they are ready to transition out of the hospital. We care for our patients hospitalized at Kaiser Permanente Sunnyside and Westside Medical Centers in the Portland Metro area, as well as within Salem Hospital, Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center in Vancouver, and St. John Medical Center in Longview, Washington. Our team of physicians coordinate services with our Specialty Care and Primary Care colleagues, and we maintain a 24/7/365 presence in all of these facilities to provide timely care for our members when they need it, day or night.
