It is unacceptable that the U.S. has the highest maternal death rate among the world’s developed nations. It is equally unacceptable that there are significant disparities in outcomes based on factors such as race, ethnicity, geographic region, payer status and even care models at facilities providing care.
As the pioneers of OB hospitalist medicine, OBHG has 13 years of singularly focused experience across a national network of hospital partners. We believe that OBHG hospitalist programs are one of the solutions to the growing rate of maternal deaths and are well-suited to help address maternal mortality and morbidity.

The last thing that should be on the mind of a woman going into labor is whether her weekend, holiday, or nighttime delivery is putting her and her baby at a greater risk of negative health outcomes. While adverse events in the labor and delivery unit can happen at any time, studies have confirmed there is a “weekend effect” in maternal care. Delivery complications occur at a higher rate during night shifts, weekends and holidays, when hospitals are understaffed and doctors with less experience are more likely to be working.
Calling Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) “the future of medicine,” a new article in Forbes Magazine explores the changing OB physician workforce. The author gives an overview of how the medical profession has evolved amidst the rising freelance revolution. He then focuses on OBHG, calling it a “unique and innovative entity” that is “furthest along in operation.”
According to a new article in Forbes, the OB hospitalist concept is a “better approach to keeping mothers safe.” The article examines the current OB/GYN model agreeing with the importance of the physician-patient bond during a woman’s pregnancy. However, the author points out that a patient’s physician is likely to not be at the hospital if an emergency arises and that’s when doctor-patient familiarity becomes far less important. The author says that OB hospitalists are the solution to ensure there are fewer maternal deaths.
