Dr. Ameyaw Elected Fellow in Hospital Medicine
Finger Lakes Health’s board-certified hospitalist Margaret-Mary Ameyaw M.D., FACP, FHM, director of the Hospital Medicine Department, has received the Fellow in Hospital Medicine (FHM) designation. She recently was elected a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (ACP).

The FHM designation is based on her fulfillment of the necessary application requirements and core hospital medicine competency criteria set by the Society of Hospital Medicine.

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) is an American membership society for hospitalists—physicians and other caregivers who practice the specialty of hospital medicine.

A hospitalist is a full-time board-certified physician specializing in the care of hospital patients. Members of a hospitalist team include physicians, nurse practitioners (NP’s) and physician assistants (PA’s). Hospitalists also work directly with care managers to anticipate a patient’s post hospital care needs. Hospitalists at Finger Lakes Health see patients in acute care, the Transitional Care Program, on the Acute Rehabilitation Unit and in the Emergency Department. Hospitalists spend all their time in the hospital, providing ongoing monitoring of patients, consultation with specialists when appropriate, and maintaining communication with each patient's primary care physician.

SHM is focused on providing resources, programs and mentoring for quality improvement program for reducing readmissions and hospital acquired diseases while optimizing transitions of care, glycemic control and overall patient care. An integral role of SHM has been the development of policy and position statements to address the concerns and issues of hospitalists and advocating on behalf of hospitalists before government and regulatory agencies.
Dr. Ameyaw lives in Geneva with her husband and two children.
