Dr. Hoddinott and Norma Espinoza NP/PA-C maintain hospital privileges at Seton Medical Center in Daly City.
We may attempt to visit you in the hospital, however your daily care in the hospital will be overseen by a specialist physician known as a hospitalist. The hospitalist stays in close communication with us about your care and will notify us about your status.
The Seton Medical Center Hospitalist Program features physicians who have strong experience in caring for hospitalized patients, many who often have serious medical conditions and frequently need a more advanced level of care. Your primary care physician may, with your consent, ask one of our hospitalists to coordinate and oversee your hospital care from admission to discharge. During that time, or upon discharge, the hospitalist will give updates to us.
