It all started when…
Dr. John Kolsbun and Dr. Mona Tara first came up with the vision of having physicians specializing in the care of adult inpatients at both the Medford Hospitals - Providence and what was then known as Rogue Valley Medical Center. They started providing care for inpatients at Rogue Valley Medical Center in October 2001.
Eventually, Medford Hospitalists LLC became Southern Oregon Hospitalists, PC.
From 2003, Southern Oregon Hospitalists, PC provide inpatient services only at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. The group has grown from 2 physicians to almost 30 physicians today. More than half the physicians that make up Southern Oregon Hospitalists, PC have been with the group for over 5 years.
“Physicians whose primary professional focus is the general medical care of hospitalized patients. Their activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital medicine.”
