Hospital Medicine (IMT)

The Inpatient Management Team (IMT) is a growing group of 7 hospitalist physicians who provide care to patients in 2 locations; CT Children’s Medical Center Hartford and Waterbury at St. Mary’s Hospital which opened in January 2009. Also in the Division are Advanced Practitioners, 11 who are integrated into the resident teams in Hartford, and 10 who separately staff the Waterbury units.

The Division has a three-fold mission: outstanding evidence-based clinical care and outcomes, excellence in teaching, and improving children’s health care through academic contributions.

The clinical mission is accomplished by providing outstanding care to all inpatients with medical illnesses that do not have a subspecialist or community physician directing their care. Currently over 85% of all general medical admissions are to our service. In addition, the Division provides consultative services on complex patients with both medical and surgical illnesses, coordinating care for those children whose conditions may involve many subspecialists. Last year we saw over 1300 admissions, representing a nearly 30% increase over the prior fiscal year. We also were responsible for more than 6000 patient days at our Hartford Campus and 400 at our Waterbury campus, close to 20% of all inpatient days.

The Division’s teaching mission is accomplished by providing an environment and oversight that maximizes learning for all the inpatient stakeholders. Learners include faculty, residents, medical students, nurses, PAs, and nurse practitioners. Our faculty provides direct and indirect supervision over the residents and medical students during their inpatient rotations, providing feedback and evaluation. In addition, members of the Division have specific interests in research in the areas of medical education.
