Also at Decatur County Memorial Hospital, we have implemented a Hospitalist Program for our patients in 2015. While you are at Decatur County Memorial Hospital, you may be cared for by a Hospitalist, a physician who specializes in the care of patients who require a hospital stay. Dr. Jennifer Fletcher and Dr. Mathew Norton maintain communication with your physician throughout your stay. They both also provide all necessary information to you physician, allowing to resume your care once discharged from the hospital.
We take a special interest in each patient’s treatment and recovery program resulting in exceptional care and highly satisfied patients. Most importantly, we’re right here in Decatur County where we can show personal attention and truly provide the “Quality Care You Want. Close By!
