We would like to welcome CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital in Texarkana, TX, to the OBHG family! Earlier this month, we kicked off a full-time, Type-A OB emergency department (OBED). This partnership is OBHG's 15th program to start in 2019.
“St. Michael is a delightful, mission-oriented hospital in northeast Texas serving its patient population in a sacrificial fashion," said Dr. Charlie Jaynes, OBHG senior director of medical operations. "Its goals are well-aligned with OBHG's core values. Its staff is friendly, well trained and very dedicated to their patients. OBHG is proud to have the opportunity to partner with Christus St. Michael and the CHRISTUS system to assist in enhancing the excellent care they bring to their patients by utilizing OBHG’s OBED and emergency first response techniques. We are proud to have opened the OB hospitalist program here this month."
