The Beebe Physician Network announces that three more physicians have joined the Hospitalist Program at Beebe Medical Center. They are: Borislav Antonov, M.D., Julie Holmon, M.D., and Faith Jabers-Matzoni, D.O. All are members of the Beebe Medical Center Medical Staff.
A Hospitalist is an internist or family practice physician who is specially trained in caring for patients in a hospital setting.
Dr. Antonov earned his medical degree at Medical University-Sofia in Sofia, Bulgaria, and completed his residency in internal medicine at Crozer Chester Medical Center in Upland, PA.
Dr. Holmon, who practiced in Milton before joining the Hospitalist Program, is Board certified in internal medicine and in pediatrics. She earned her medical degree at John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD. She completed her residency in internal medicine/pediatrics at Christiana Care Health Systems in Newark, DE.
Dr. Jabers-Matzoni is Board certified in internal medicine. She earned her medical degree at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, and completed her internal medicine residency at Pennsylvania State University Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA.
A hospitalist program is one in which a medical center maintains a team of physicians called hospitalists who are based in the hospital and who focus on the medical care of the hospitalized patients. This team provides patients with round-the-clock coordination of care during their stay in the hospital. The physicians follow patients' progress, order tests and prescriptions as needed, answer patient and family questions, consult with specialists and communicate with primary physicians.
The hospitalist is one of the fastest growing medical specialties in the nation. These physicians not only have an expertise in the hospital's processes, resources and staff, but they are experienced at dealing with the hospitalized patients of today who are routinely much sicker than they have been in the past when outpatient services were not so advanced and utilized.
Thomas M. Duggan, M.D., is the Medical Director of the Hospitalist program at Beebe Medical Center.
