OBHG collaboration helps increase birth volume
Area hospitals found themselves competing for a shrinking maternity patient pool. In 2010, Bellevue Woman’s Center in Schenectady, NY, began a relationship with Ob Hospitalist Group to help cultivate the hospital’s status as a center of quality OB care. A critical part of that strategy was to nurture collaborations with the center’s affiliated private certified nurse-midwifes (CNMs) — a group of professionals well-positioned to attract more patients and stabilize the labor and delivery unit’s patient volume.
Enhancing community OB/GYN quality of life
Novant Prince William Medical Center in Manassas, VA, previously worked with an OB hospitalist vendor that did not facilitate a collaborative relationship with community OB/GYNs. Prince William partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) and since the launch, the local OB/GYNs have seen a dramatic change.
OBHG partnership enables OB/GYN and midwifery practices to thrive
Good Samaritan Hospital, in Suffern, NY, was looking to improve patient safety in their labor and delivery unit, support their midwifery practice and alleviate the on-call burden for community obstetricians. The facility partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group to launch a new hospitalist program in 2017, and local midwifery and OB/GYN practices have been thriving ever since.
"We would never want to go back to not having a hospitalist program. We don’t have the infrastructure administratively to do this on our own,” said Dr. Patricia Pollio, director of OB/GYN at Good Samaritan.
Local physicians appreciate presence of OBHG hospitalists
When St. David's South Austin Medical Center first partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group, local OB/GYNs were skeptical. Soon, they discovered the benefits of the partnership and the impact it had not only on their lives but the lives of their patients and their families.
“The hospitalists are easy to work with. They have made our call and coverage easier. They are very competent in their evaluation and treatment of our patients,” said Dr. Ana Eduardo of Hill Country OB/GYN in Austin, TX.
