Dr. Zhang's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Zhang "Dr. Peng Zhang enjoys providing patients with the acute care that is so important in hospital medicine. "Working as a team in the hospital, we provide 24/7 care for the patient," he explains. "The hospitalist is responsible for coordinating care from all the specialties and then communicating to the primary care physician. We are really at the epicenter of providing care to the patient." Many of the patients that Dr. Zhang treats in the hospital have multiple medical problems. "We usually work with an older population – a lot of people in their 80's and 90's. These patients can be a challenge to treat due to the fact that they are often suffering from more than one serious health problem, are on multiple medications, and sometimes have social issues. That's why it's so important to tailor treatment to each patient's individual condition." Unlike most Reliant Medical Group hospitalists, Dr. Zhang works mainly in the Emergency Room, handling admissions for Saint Vincent Hospital. "If a patient comes to the ER at night and needs to be admitted, I take over from there. I see the patient first when they come in at night, before the other hospitalists." Dr. Zhang believes it's important to give patients and families guidance on what to expect when it comes to care. "I like to explain in detail whether they will need rehab, how soon they may be able to go home, and what their care will be like. I think it's important for everyone to understand as much as possible about how the patient is doing." In his spare time, Dr. Zhang enjoys being with his family and playing bridge with friends. He also likes to invest in the stock market and exercise in his home gym."
