Milan 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.
Misty Allen, MD, started her new role as a hospitalist December 2013. Dr. Allen has been a hospitalist at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital since 2007. She is a Family Medicine physician with special training and experience in critical care. Allen graduated Summa Cum Laude in May of 2005 from the University Of Tennessee College Of Medicine and completed her internship and residency at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.
“I love taking care of all kinds of patients. I really enjoy the challenge of caring for patients and their families in what are sometimes very complicated medical situations. I firmly believe it is important to spend quality time with patients in order to design an individualized treatment plan,” Allen said.
