Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in taking care of patients while they are in the hospital, including those admitted through the Emergency Department.  Hospitalist programs were started to provide patients with access to the highest quality care at all times.

Our Orthopedic and Surgical Hospitalists rotate their schedules to ensure that you receive around-the-clock quality care while in the hospital and throughout your follow-up period.  They are members of a team of physicians dedicated to the hospital and committed exclusively to its patients.  This allows other physicians in the community to focus on patients who have scheduled appointments in their practices. Hospitalists must meet the same requirements as every other physician on the hospital’s medical staff and were chosen because of their skills and ability to provide quality patient care. Our Hospitalists provide CarolinaEast Health System patients acute orthopedic surgical and fracture care, acute general surgery care as well as an elective outpatient general surgery clinic.

Elective General Surgery-

The Orthopedic and Surgical Hospitalists have added new and exciting capabilities to the surgical services available at CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern, NC. In addition to the acute care and emergency surgery services, the program now provides elective surgery services. The elective service is a complement to the existing acute care/emergency surgery service. The surgeons work together to provide the best possible service for all patients with surgical conditions.  

Elective services available include gastrointestinal surgery (colon/rectum, small intestine, gall bladder, stomach, etc.), soft tissue biopsies as well as other procedures. The service also provides advanced robotic and laparoscopic surgeries for certain procedures. The service does not provide elective bariatric (weight loss), elective vascular, specialty pediatric, thoracic (lung and heart), or plastic (cosmetic) surgery. Questions about which services are provided will be gladly provided by the clinic staff.
