Heart Wellness Screening
As part of our commitment to providing excellent inpatient medical care, Shasta Regional Medical Center is pleased to offer patients the service and attention of our dedicated hospitalists.
A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in caring for patients in the hospital. Our hospitalists work with emergency department physicians, your primary care physician (PCP) and any necessary specialists to provide a seamless transition, from admission to discharge to outpatient follow-up.
Hospitalists are available to provide care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are accessible throughout your hospital stay. They know every specialty and department in the hospital and are in the hospital all day, ready to assist you. During critical and stressful moments, they will provide honest and considerate answers to your questions and will be able to spend time talking to you and your family about your care at times when your primary care physician is not available.
Shasta Regional Medical Center hospitalists are Board certified/Board eligible internal or family medicine physicians, and generally do not have an outpatient medical practice. Many hospitalists have additional training in pulmonary, critical care medicine or other sub-specialties. Our hospitalists typically work one week on and one week off, so you may see more than one hospitalist physician during your stay.
Our laboratory is located on the hospital campus and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and on holidays. The Clinical Laboratory is accredited by the Joint Commission and The American Association of Blood Banks. We perform a full range of diagnostic tests. Testing is performed by licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientists with bachelor degrees, and blood draws are performed by California Certified Phlebotomy Technicians with training and experience with all age groups. A pathologist is available for physician consultation.

Shasta Regional’s Nutrition Coaching Program is designed to help you make the changes you need to live a healthy lifestyle.

We focus on helping you make little changes that create lasting results. Nutrition coaching is successful because you decide what you want to change and how you want to change it…the coach is your guide.
