Oswego Hospital welcomes Hospitalist Clarissa Del Rosario, MD, to its active medical staff.
As a hospitalist, Dr. Del Rosario will care for inpatients at Oswego Hospital, whose primary care physicians have opted to take advantage of the healthcare facility’s hospitalist program.
Dr. Del Rosario is board-certified as both an internist and as a nephrologist.
A member of the hospitalist team is always in the hospital, able to provide immediate care, including the ordering of tests and procedures.
Since a hospitalist is always available, they can conveniently discuss the plan of care with their patients and their family members. Oswego Hospital implemented its hospitalist program in 2009.
Dr. Del Rosario earned her medical degree, graduating cum laude from Far Eastern University Medical Center in the Philippines, where she also completed a post-graduate internship.
Dr. Del Rosario completed an externship in internal medicine at Providence Hospital, located in Washington, DC, and an internship and residency, also in internal medicine, at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola.
She fulfilled her nephrology fellowship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
Dr. Del Rosario said it has been her goal since she was five years old to become a physician.
In her native Philippines, her grandfather had a successful general physician practice.
Dr. Del Rosario said she is enjoying caring for her patients at Oswego Hospital and getting to know her colleagues and other hospital staff members.
The hospitalist position provides a flexible work schedule allowing her to balance her career and family life.
She and her husband, Alberto Del Pilar, MD, who provides care at a private Oswego medical practice, have a young son.
