AHMC Welcomes New Physician to its Hospitalist Program

October 11, 2011

Dr. Aura Cernii has joined the Medical Center’s Hospitalist Program*, which is operated in collaboration with the nationally-renowned Apogee Physicians.

Aura Cernii, MD, comes to Malone from the Hospital of Saint Raphael in New Haven, CT, where she recently completed a fellowship in Nephrology. Prior to the fellowship, Dr. Cernii served as Chief Medical Resident of Ambulatory Care at Saint Raphael. Dr. Cernii earned her medical degree from State Medical & Pharmaceutical University, N. Testemitanu, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. In addition to her residency in Ambulatory Cared the Hospital of Saint Raphael, Dr. Cernii completed a residency in Internal Medicine, and an Oncology residency at the Republican Clinical Hospital/State Medical University Program, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova.  

*A Hospitalist is a specialist in the field of internal medicine or family practice who cares only for hospitalized patients. Generally, Hospitalists have no patient care responsibilities outside the hospital, enabling them to focus exclusively on the acute care patients and their illnesses while hospitalized. Because members of the Hospitalist team are in the hospital, 24/7, they are able to respond quickly to any change in a patient’s condition. Another advantage for patients will be a shortened wait time to be admitted—they will not need to wait for their provider to admit them to the hospital—the Hospitalist facilitates this so care and treatment can start immediately. Hospitalists at AHMC work with patients’ primary care providers to develop a care plan, both for the hospital stay and for care once a patient leaves the hospital.
