Deborah L. Roe, APNP
Clinic and Offices
Deborah Roe is an adult nurse practitioner trained in caring for adult patients who have been admitted to the hospital. Deborah Roe, APNP, works closely with our hospitalists to treat patients who are hospitalized and usually in a more acute stage of their care. Like hospitalists, she does not have a regular clinic practice; her focus is entirely on inpatient care. There are more than an estimated 50,000 hospitalists in the United States, specializing in the acute care of patients during their hospital stay. Hospital medicine is growing in its popularity as a medical specialty in approximately 75% of U.S. hospitals.
Fort Memorial Hospitalist Program
Your primary care physician may have asked a hospitalist to care for you throughout your stay at Fort Memorial Hospital. The Hospitalist and any other consulting specialists are in charge of all your medical care while you are an inpatient.
It is optional for Fort HealthCare primary care physicians to participate in the Hospitalist Program. Some primary care physicians have elected to continue caring for their hospitalized patients. They may consult with the hospitalists at any time as this service is available to all physicians. Also, hospitalists may be asked to consult on surgical patients when patients have other medical conditions that may require monitoring.
Persons admitted to the Fort Memorial Hospital without a regular primary care physician will be cared for by the hospitalist. If needed, we can assist you in finding a regular physician upon your discharge.
