Hospitalist Appointed to Medical Staff at Chester River Hospital Center
For immediate release...
Keri Jacobs, M.D., has joined the medical staff at Chester River Hospital Center. Jacobs recently relocated to Betterton from Baltimore, where she acted as chief resident of the combined emergency medicine/internal medicine program. Jacobs earned her bachelor of science degree from Stevenson University and her medical degree from University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Jacobs will join CRHC’s medical staff as director of the hospitalist program. The CRHC’s hospitalist program was created in response to the increased demands faced by local physicians during their daily office practices. The hospitalist program allows the primary care physicians to focus on providing high-quality outpatient care to their patients. CRHC’s hospitalist program offers a continuum of quality care for patients admitted to their service. And, since hospitalists practice in the hospital they are always on-site—available to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
When she is not working, Jacobs enjoys running and playing in a women’s soccer league. She also works at Orioles games throughout the summer. There, she mans the First Aid Station for University of Maryland Medical System and usually sees somewhere between three to 15 patients complaining of, most often, foul-ball related injuries. “I’m glad to make this move to Chester River. I am excited to have the opportunity to practice medicine here”, commented Jacobs.
