For aging patients and patients who struggle with certain chronic conditions, long-term hospital stays are a reality, and it may become difficult to reach a primary care physician outside of the hospital. That said, those patients still deserve the one-on-one care and trust of a designated PCP who knows them.
That’s why the team of primary care doctors at PT Family Medicine are proud to offer coordinated hospital care at UPMC East and AHN Forbes for patients whose mobility is limited. As an independent practice, we’re able to coordinate with the care team at your or your loved one’s hospital, ensuring that all information is shared and that personalized, high-quality care continues throughout their treatment. We’re here to support both patients and their families, working to answer questions, address concerns, and ensuring that the patient’s care progresses as smoothly as possible.
If you’re ready to receive the most patient-focused, individualized primary care Pittsburgh has to offer, now is the time to get started with us. Schedule your first appointment with the team at PT Family Medicine today.
When your loved one is spending extended amounts of time in the hospital, you may fear that they’ll become just another patient as part of a greater system. While Pittsburgh has some of the top hospitals in the nation, giving your loved one additional support and a coordinated, individualized level of care throughout their treatment can make a massive difference in their outcome.
PT Family Medicine is passionate about building trusting, long-term relationships with all of our patients, and that means that if a patient is moved to a hospital for extended care, we’ll continue caring for them there as well. This doesn’t just involve being there in your loved one’s room – it involves coordinating with their hospital care team, sharing information that can benefit them, and being a support to your family as the patient continues with their treatment.

For many patients who are in the hospital with long-term or chronic illnesses, mobility is either difficult or not an option at all. This can make it difficult for the patient to get in contact with an individualized, one-on-one provider they truly trust. Having a designated primary care provider as part of your loved one’s care team at the hospital can put your loved one at ease and offer a more personalized voice in their treatment plan.
