Work Hours and Call Coverage:

Gastroenterology call is covered by GI Hospitalists, allowing our traditional practicing physicians the ability to have high volume general practices. The GI hospitalist is typically in house from approximately 7 am – 4 pm on weekdays, does rounds on Saturday and procedures on Sunday in a dedicated block from 7:00 am – 12:00 pm with endoscopy staff and anesthesia to reduce the use of main OR over the weekend. While this position does take 24-hour call, our ER and ICU overnight teams typically understand urgent/emergent GI cases can wait until morning and do not typically call during late night/overnight hours.
