Waupun Memorial Welcomes New Hospitalist

Agnesian HealthCare welcomes hospitalist Rajesh Sharma, MD, to Waupun Memorial Hospital, 620 W. Brown 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.

“As a hospitalist, my first goal is to get to know the patient, develop a relationship and make them comfortable, address their concerns, and reassure them of timely and great care,” says Dr. Sharma.

A graduate of the University of Nairobi School of Medicine in Nairobi, Kenya, Dr. Sharma completed his internal medicine residency at St. Joseph Hospital, an affiliate of Northwestern School of Medicine) in Chicago, Illinois. He is board certified in internal medicine.

“I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the quality care team at Waupun Memorial Hospital,” according to Dr. Sharma. “By being accessible as a hospital medicine physician, we have access to multiple healthcare resources to more effectively and efficiently deliver high quality care to our patients and their families. Our goal is to ensure an excellent hospital stay while working toward a smooth transition for when patients are ready to go home.”
