Agnesian HealthCare Welcomes Hospitalist

Agnesian HealthCare welcomes hospitalist Taha El-Shahat, MD, to St. Agnes Hospital, 430 E. Division Street.

A hospitalist is a physician that specializes in caring for patients while they are hospitalized. Hospitalists communicate with the patient’s primary care providers, as well as any other specialists that may be working with that patient. Patients see hospitalists regularly throughout their inpatient stay. They are available all day or night to care for patients.

“When caring for my patients, I look at the whole person and use the most up-to-date information and technology available to provide the best possible care,” according to Dr. El-Shahat. “I believe strongly in treating patients the way you would treat family.”

A graduate of the Ross University School of Medicine, Dr. El-Shahat completed his family medicine residency at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Wausau. He is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

“I appreciate the opportunity to help patients in the worst of health and disease, and provide simply the best care,” Dr. El-Shahat says. “I am looking forward to getting involved in the community and giving back.”

In his free time, he enjoys soccer, football, hiking, fishing, playing squash, table tennis, deep sea diving, traveling, snow-shoeing and cross country skiing.
