Extensivist Medicine

Summit Medical Group Extensivist Medicine can help you get the medical services and therapy you need after you have been hospitalized and when you can still benefit from care in a rehabilitation center.


If you have been hospitalized for a surgery, procedure, or an injury that leaves you with impairments, your doctor might recommend follow-up treatment in a rehabilitation center until you become strong enough to manage activities of daily living and be independent.

Our Extensivist Medicine team is comprised of board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners who are trained and experienced in geriatric medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, and rehabilitation medicine. They help arrange the comprehensive care you need to regain your strength, lessen the time you must stay at the rehabilitation facility, return safely home, and prevent you from returning to the hospital.

Our extensivists coordinate care for Summit Medical Group patients and can:

  • Evaluate you when you are admitted
  • Discuss your condition and needs with you, a designated family member, your primary care physician, and specialists
  • Examine you routinely during your stay
  • Coordinate your care, including exams, tests, consultations, and treatments
  • Send your primary care physician a summary of your medical records, including your medications
  • Plan your discharge
  • Prescribe medications and physical therapy you need when you return home
  • Arrange follow-up care after you leave

When you return home, our extensivists will partner with care managers to help ease your transition, ensure you continue getting stronger, stay healthy, and do not return to the hospital.
