Every minute counts when you are pregnant. As a mom, you want to know that when it's time for your big day, you will receive the highest level of physician care from the moment you arrive in the hospital - and that's exactly what our OB/GYN Hospitalist Program offers.

Providing an additional layer of care for our patients, the OB Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is in-house 24/7 and provides coverage for emergencies, labor checks, labor management, deliveries, assistance with surgical procedures and C-sections, care for GYN emergencies and rounding on post-partum patients.

When your doctor can't be there, ours will. By working directly with your doctor, we are able to bridge the gap of care until your personal physician arrives at the hospital. This added layer of protection for you and your baby ensures consistent, timely care by delivering 24/7 real-time triage and hospital-based obstetric coverage. Ultimately- Expectant moms and dads can rest assured knowing that OB/GYN physicians are ready, available and in the hospital to tend to any matters small or large, 24/7.

"As a mom, it's important to know that when patients arrive in our department, we can tell them a doctor will be right with you, and we literally mean it," said Roxanne Bernard, Director, Women's & Children's Services at Northwest Medical Center. "Partnering with OB Hospitalist Group gives our Women's & Children's Department the added support they need to ensure clinical coverage for all of our patients at all times. With immediate access to OB/GYN specialties 24/7, this new program goes above and beyond, setting us a part from our competitors."

"The on-site availability of our OB hospitalists improves the quality and safety of women's healthcare, reduces risk and supports the medical staff," said Shavonne Ramsey-Coleman, Site Director of OB hospitalists.

So, while you can count on your doctor to be there for your big moment, ours will be there for all of the moments in between.
