Medicine Procedure Service (MPS)

Director: Jonathan Sebolt, MD
Assistant Director: Michael Adams, MD

The Medicine Procedure Service (MPS), a new service within the Division of Hospital Medicine beginning July 1, 2021, was implemented to improve patients' experience and comfort by providing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (ultrasound-guided paracentesis, thoracentesis, and lumbar puncture) that are timely, delivered at the bedside, and in close collaboration with inpatient teams to maximize quality of care.

Staffed by advanced practice providers and physicians, MPS performs procedures on patients cared for by all adult inpatient services. In collaboration with other specialties including Pulmonology, Interventional Radiology, and Thoracic Surgery, MPS provides support for bedside evaluation, consultation, and procedure performance.
