Sisters of Charity Hospital and Buffalo Medical Group Expand Hospitalist Agreement

Physician Group Extends Hospitalist Services to Sisters Hospital, St. Joseph Campus

Buffalo, NY – Catholic Health announced today that Sisters of Charity Hospital and Buffalo Medical Group, PC (BMG) have expanded their hospitalist services agreement to include Sisters Hospital, St. Joseph Campus in Cheektowaga. The Buffalo-based physician group practice has provided hospitalist services at Sisters Hospital Main Street Campus since 2012.

“The continuity of BMG providing hospitalist care at both of our campuses, enhances care coordination and communication, while ensuring our patients receive the highest quality care throughout their hospitalization,” said Martin Boryszak, president & CEO, Sisters of Charity Hospital.

Hospitalist physicians are an integral part of the healthcare team, managing the care of patients in acute care hospital settings. They consult with specialists as necessary and coordinate in hospital and post hospital care in conjunction with a patient’s primary care physician.

As one of the largest multi-specialty physician group practices in New York State, BMG will continue to provide hospitalist care for its patients in other acute care settings as well.

“We have had a successful relationship with Sisters Hospital for the past five years and are thrilled to be expanding our hospitalist coverage to its St. Joseph Campus,” added Matthew Smith, MD, Co-Chair of the BMG Hospitalist program. “We look forward to building on this partnership while meeting the acute care needs of patients at St. Joseph Campus.”

BMG Hospitalists have taken over coverage at Sisters Hospital, St. Joseph Campus as of the first of the month.
