Angel Medical Center announces the appointment of a third Hospitalist to its staff, Dr. Jignesh Patel. Dr. Patel comes to AMC from Sanford, N.C., where he served as a Hospitalist at In Compass Health at Central Carolina Hospital, and prior to In Compass, Dr. Patel served at Kinston Community Health Center in Washington DC.
Dr. Patel received his MD from the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in St. Martin, NA and received his board certification from the American Society of Clinical Pathology- CT.
Hospitalist is one of the newest medical sub-specialties who have dedicated their training and their careers to providing team-based, patient centered care that helps achieve quality outcomes. The Hospitalist has a consistent in-hospital presence, providing availability not only to the patient, but also the patient’s family, and being available to the healthcare team who cares for the patient.
“We’re very pleased to add a third full-time physician to our hospitalist program. His experience will be an asset to Angel Medical Center and to the patients that we serve,” said Paula Alter, Physician Services Executive.
Dr. Patel joined Dr. Michael Sheaffer and Dr. Mahendra Patel as a Hospitalist at Angel Medical Center on June 6.
