A Unique Vision

Ob Hospitalist Group began in 2006 with a vision to Elevate Women’s Healthcare by making certain every expectant mother was afforded consistent, unconditional, quality medical care by a physician when presenting to the Labor and Delivery department. The concept seemed simple, but the challenge was daunting. At the time, nearly every known laborist model in the United States was associated with very large teaching hospitals and dependent upon outside funding. Defining and creating a financially viable model beyond a typical laborist program became the passion for our founder, Dr. Chris Swain.

The Birth of the First Ob Hospitalist Group Program

Dr. Chris Swain began his work in Kissimmee, Florida. In collaboration with a national hospital management company, hospital staff and private physicians, Dr. Swain developed the concepts, policies and procedures for the first Ob Hospitalist Group program and our first Obstetric Emergency Department (OBED). These early experiences and lessons proved invaluable as they ultimately resulted in the development of a financially viable solution.
