Fairview Range Welcomes New Hospitalist Physician

Posted 262 days ago ago by Fairview Range

Fairview Range is pleased to welcome Arvydas Urbonas, MD, to its medical staff.

Dr. Urbonas specializes and is board certified in Internal Medicine. He comes to us with over 30 years of experience and joins the hospitalist team of Dr. Sereen Sharp, Dr. Scott Stenstrom, Dr. Andrew McGibben, Dr. Anthony Bastianelli and Certified Nurse Practitioner Selena Lundquist.

Hospitalists are available to provide care 24/7 when patients are admitted to the hospital.  The extensive experience of Fairview Range hospitalists allows them to recognize and diagnose unusual disorders, anticipate problems and rapidly respond to crises or changes in a patient’s condition.

They work consistently with all of the members of the patient care team, including physician specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses and others to help improve the quality and effectiveness of care.

When patients are discharged, Fairview Range hospitalists will discuss necessary treatments, testing, follow-up appointments and medication prescriptions with the patient’s primary doctor. When patients are released from the hospital, their primary doctor resumes care and answers questions.

“Having a hospitalist program here at Fairview Range in Hibbing provides convenient, around-the-clock access and care for patients region-wide,” says Connie Harle, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Fairview Range. “A hospitalist is always available and can respond quickly to patients’ needs.”

Contact your primary care provider to discuss how Fairview Range’s hospitalist program can benefit you.

Dr. Urbonas, Hospitalist
