Nix Health and Southwest Medical Associates
Providing Better San Antonio Medical Services
At Nix Health, we’re dedicated to continually improving the in-hospital
experience of our patients. With this in mind, we’ve partnered with
Southwest Medical Associates to implement a patient-focused inpatient
management program designed to improve and optimize the patient care experience.
Southwest Medical Associates was founded by a group of physicians who
wanted to address the disparity between effective inpatient care and the
costs and risks of prolonged hospitalization. They believe that dedicated,
engaged hospitalists can deliver not only better medical care, but also
improve patient education, clinical documentation, and hospital efficiencies.
How Do Hospitalists Benefit Patients?
A hospitalist, or internal medicine specialists who focuses exclusively
on hospitalized patients, can provide dedicated, one-on-one care, 24 hours a day.
As a patient at Nix Health, you can expect a Southwest Medical Associates
physician to provide:
- Focused inpatient care, 24/7
- Emergency services
- Day-to-day healthcare
- Open communication
- Consultations with specialists
- General assistance
Your dedicated hospitalist will communicate with your primary care physician
on your behalf to relay any important updates and give a summary of your
hospital stay. They will also coordinate with our hospital nurses and
can provide referrals to specialists as needed. Southwest Medical Associates
physicians accept direct admissions, transfers from outlying hospitals,
clinics and emergency rooms, as well as consultation, cross coverage,
or weekend coverage for physicians at Nix Health. To learn more about
our inpatient programs, contact Nix Health today.
Nix Health strives to provide the best hospital care possible for every
one of our patients. Our alignment with Southwest Medical Associates ensures
that our patients receive quality inpatient care that goes above and beyond
typical hospital services. A Southwest Medical Associates physician can
help ensure a smooth transition from hospital stay to after-care, making
the process simple and seamless for you. We believe in providing respectful,
compassionate care that you can rely on. To learn more about our San Antonio
