Around the clock care from hospital-based, OB/GYN clinicians.
Ready to learn more about what we do? Now’s the time to begin building your OB hospitalist career.
Is it time to rethink your hospital’s labor and delivery? We can help elevate care, reduce risk and protect your bottom line.
Immediate care for all pregnant women
Ob Hospitalist Group was founded on the vision and commitment that every expectant mother presenting to labor and delivery would receive consistent, unconditional, quality medical care by a highly-skilled clinician. Today, we are the largest and only dedicated OB/GYN hospitalist employer in the nation. Our singular focus on OB hospitalist programs gives us unparalleled insight to deliver differentiated performance and results.

What We Do
Our dedicated and skilled OB clinicians are in the hospital 24/7 to ensure consistent, timely care for every patient entering the labor and delivery unit or obstetric emergency department. Their presence reduces delay in emergent OB/GYN care, improves outcomes, reduces wait times and increases patient satisfaction compared to traditional triage models. In addition, OBHG hospitalists are available around the clock offering collaborative, non-competitive support for local OB/GYN physicians.
Why We're Different
In hospitals throughout the nation, our depth of experience and exclusive focus on OB hospitalist medicine makes us uniquely qualified to keep patient care at the forefront of everything we do. We do this while ensuring the specific needs of our hospital partners are met and providing non-competitive support for local physicians. Our size and experience enables us to demonstrably impact clinical quality, program utilization and financial performance.
OBHG helped to bring in an outside, positive influence as a back-up and guardrails for evidence-based standards of care. To have an OB on site, present 24/7 who could step in if there was a maternal complication was very important to us.
You never know when you’re going to have an emergency walk through the door. With an OBHG physician always in the hospital, there is no time wasted when a patient needs immediate care.
It’s nice not having to worry about all the office things that I used to have to worry about, to have a defined set of responsibilities. I get to work and do my job, and then I get to come home…It’s a wonderful fit for me.
I love having the physicians here because it's an immediate resource. Instead of having to wait minutes or longer, having access to somebody who can immediately help us deliver a baby that's in trouble, whether it be by emergency cesarean or a patient who comes in who is imminently delivering really makes a difference in the level of care that we can give.
OBHG hospitalists not only respond to emergencies in progress to improve outcomes, but they also work toward keeping their hospital team ready and prepared to respond while trying to predict and prevent emergencies before they happen.
