Welcome to Russell Medical Hospital Medicine

During your hospital stay, a highly trained and skilled team comprised of Physicians, Nurse Practitioners (CRNP’s), Physician Assistants (PA’s), nurses, and ancillary staff will provide your care. In collaboration with our Chief Medical Officer and Hospital Medicine Director, Dr. Michele Goldhagen, our Hospital Medicine staff will be engaged in the excellent care you will receive while being a patient at Russell Medical. The Hospital Medicine team always has a provider in the hospital available to meet any of your needs throughout the duration of your stay at Russell Medical. We are always here for you.

Our philosophy is grounded in being the best, because we care. We have embraced the opportunities and needs of Russell Medical and the surrounding community to ensure seamless delivery of patient care. Through these rural health opportunities, the Russell Medical Hospital Medicine program has consistently stepped up to care for patients admitted into the hospital. One example of this is our ongoing partnership with UAB medicine. We have never shied away from a challenge, and this attitude has developed Hospital Medicine into the “backbone” of clinical delivery at Russell Medical.


Hospital Medicine is the largest provider of inpatient care at Russell Medical, and proudly serves as the cornerstone of clinical care. Within our service, our approach to education is the same as our approach to patient care- and that is with an unrivaled commitment to excellence and innovation. We train and mentor medical students, nurse practitioner students, interns, residents, and fellows, and our learners leave our service with a comprehensive understanding of how to deliver high-quality, evidence-based, efficient, and compassionate inpatient care. We are confident that when our trainees graduate, they will be better prepared as a consequence of spending time on our service.
