“The Department of Internal Medicine is now responsible for fifty-four percent of inpatient admissions at North Carolina Baptist Hospital . This year we have made significant advances in our clinical enterprise. The hospitalist program within the Section of General Internal Medicine has grown substantively and its success is an example of partnership with the hospital. We also opened a Palliative Care Unit”

 Kevin P. High, MD, MS
Interim Chair, Department of Internal Medicine
Physicians specializing in General Internal Medicine care for “the whole patient” instead of focusing on a single organ or disease state. Many times that equates to providing primary care and screenings.  At other times, they manage a patient’s chronic or ongoing disease. This includes a referral to Palliative Care when the patient could benefit from the comfort provided by that department.
