Please welcome CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center – Longview in Longview, TX, to the OBHG family! The team at Good Shepherd kicked off a full-time, Type A OB emergency department today.
“This is a significant improvement for the mother and the baby,” said Mark Anderson, chief medical officer of CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Health System. “It is improving maternal safety because babies don’t always time when they are delivered.”
"We are excited to expand our partnership with the CHRISTUS Health system through the addition of the Good Shepherd-Longview location," said Christi Acker, OBHG director of hospital operations. "The hospital shares in our mission to elevate the quality and availability of obstetric care to expectant mothers. Our journey to program implementation has been collaborative, supportive, and at times creative in an effort to meet our accelerated timeline and go-live goals. I anticipate that we will move forward with the same spirit and look forward to the future success of the program."
As we begin our fourth partnership with a CHRISTUS Health hospital, OBHG is excited to expand our network to provide the highest standard of care to more women and babies!
