Ministry Saint Clare’s Welcomes New Hospitalist
Ministry Health Care is pleased to welcome Mikhail Barchugova, MD, who recently joined the Hospitalist Department at Ministry Saint Clare’s Hospital in Weston.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in caring for patients who have been hospitalized. In many areas of the country, personal physicians are referring their patients to a Hospitalist when their patients are sick enough that they can no longer be cared for in the outpatient setting.
Dr. Barchugova received his medical degree from Petrozavodsk State University in Russia. He had extensive critical care and anesthesiology training in Russia and Germany. He then completed internal medicine residency at St. Mary’s Hospital in St. Louis, MO.
“As a hospitalist, my role is to take care of people when they are inpatients. My goal is to understand the full range of medical problems my patients might be experiencing and to provide personalized care to every patient,” said Dr. Barchugova.
Dr. Barchugova enjoys spending time with his wife, Ministry Health Care physician Olga Barchugova, and their three daughters.
