Being Discharged from a Hospital, and Requesting Specific Doctors

Time: Present Day
Place: USA, Hospital

A patient is being treated at a hospital with a serious yet unidentifiable ailment. The doctors have not discharged the patient, but the patient wants to leave. What are the conditions for the doctors keeping the patient against their will? Got it, thanks!!

If the patient can't leave, then he'll instead call in a specific doctor -- a well-known foreign doctor (which may or may not anger the current diagnostician working on the case *cough*) Would the foreign doctor be permitted to use the hospital's facilities in treating the patient?

Thank you!! ^_^
