Bolivar General Hospitalist

Bolivar General Hospital is proud to announce the addition of a new hospitalist program. A hospitalist is a physician whose practice is dedicated to caring for patients while they are in the hospital. Hospitalists specialize in the supervision of inpatients’ care and consult with the patients’ primary care physicians as needed. Hospitalists do not provide care for patients outside of the hospital setting. Samuel Johnson, Jr., MD will serve as its hospitalist.

Dr. Johnson is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended medical school and completed his internship/residency at Meharry Medical College of Family Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Johnson is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Tennessee Academy of Family Physicians. “As the Hardeman County population ages and fewer physicians are available in the community, this service will allow patients to stay close to family and friend while receiving care,” says Dr. Johnson.

Bolivar General Hospital offers a broad range of medical care including: Emergency Medicine, Lab, General Medicine, Physical Therapy, Radiology/Mammography, Internal Medicine, Respiratory Care, Swing Beds, Gastroenterology, and Sleep laboratory.
