Division of Hospital Medicine

Welcome to the UNC Division of Hospital Medicine, the newest in the Department of Medicine.

UNC Hospital Medicine started in 2005 with a handful of physicians covering a single service. Our division is now comprised of over 50 physician and advanced practice providers dedicated to comprehensive care of inpatients at UNC Hospitals both in Chapel Hill and at the Hillsborough Campus, which opened in 2015.

We provide a broad range of services including Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, bedside procedures, internal medicine consultation, and co-management for our surgical and other specialty colleagues. We attend on Internal Medicine and Pediatrics resident services and in the new 1 Memorial Observation Unit, in collaboration with the UNC Department of Family Medicine. Our practitioners are also actively engaged in efforts to enhance the overall performance of our health care system.

As School of Medicine faculty, we share three core missions:

  • Deliver patient-centered, high-quality and high-value care across UNC Hospitals
  • Provide effective and innovative medical education for all levels of learners at UNC School of Medicine
  • Advance the science of hospital medicine through quality improvement efforts and clinical research

Our providers are also especially proud of a team culture that enables them to provide the very best care to their patients, their loved ones and each other.

Thank you for your interest in our services. We are here to serve you.
