Bronson Hospitalist Service Renamed Bronson Internal Medicine Hospital Specialists

July 10, 2007


KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Effective July 1, 2007, Bronson Hospitalist Service changed its name to Bronson Internal Medicine Hospital Specialists. There will not be any changes in services or staff.


Hospitalists are board certified internal medicine physicians who are experts in inpatient care. And they're at Bronson around the clock to communicate with patients and families.


The new name is intended to make it easier for patients and the community to understand the role of these healthcare providers. Many people do not understand the term “hospitalist,” so nationally, healthcare organizations are moving away from using the term.


Bronson Internal Medicine Hospital Specialists reflects that fact that all physicians and mid-levels (PA-C’s) in that practice have internal medicine as their specialty. There are 17 physicians and four certified physician assistants with Bronson Hospitalist Service. Dr. Hussein Akl serves as medical director. The practice, at 601 John St. in Kalamazoo, can be reached at (269) 341-8481.
