What Can the Hospital Do for You? Although chiropractors will probably not admit patients, they may still co-manage cases or consult admitted patients while collaborating with the admitting physician. Chiropractors are not alone; many emergency room physicians, radiologists, public health physicians, optometrists and psychologists work in hospitals without admission privileges.
Mather Hospital's Chiropractic Collaboration Program provides coordinated patient care, education and outreach to patients who access both medical and chiropractic care. The Collaboration has members from the Hamptons to Commack and is believed to be the first of its kind on Long Island.
