Ob Hospitalist Group’s (OBHG) mission is to elevate the standard and quality of women’s healthcare. Our programs do just that by making a positive impact across many significant areas of hospital medicine. This blog series: OBHG Impact Series will cover key areas where OBHG makes a difference.
This initial post will review the impact an OBHG program can deliver to partner hospitals by improving throughput in the main Emergency Department (ED) thereby increasing Patient Safety, not just for those patients presenting to Labor and Delivery (L&D) but all patients with emergent care needs. Future posts will address Patient Experience, Risk Reduction, Physician Satisfaction and Nursing Staff Satisfaction and Retention.
When midwives and laborists work in conjunction with an obstetrician, there can be a substantial decrease in the rate of cesarean delivery, according to a study from one large community hospital.
"The change from a private practice to a hospitalist model was associated with dramatic decreases in nulliparous term singleton vertex cesarean delivery rates, and almost a doubling of the rates of vaginal birth after cesarean, said Melissa Rosenstein, MD, from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.
Ob Hospitalist Group is proud to announce the birth of Avery Ford, a baby boy born January 29, 2015. Weighing 14.1 pounds, Avery is the heaviest baby born at St Joseph's Women's Hospital to date. Thanks to the excellent care provided by Ob Hospitalist Group physicians, Maxxzandra Ford and her son are healthy and looking forward to returning home soon.
"We are grateful Dr. Joseph Singer, of Ob Hospitalist Group, was here to handle this extraordinary obstetric event, resulting in a successful delivery for both mom and baby,” said St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital Director of Women’s Services Pamela Malone Quarles. “The OBHG hospitalists are always responsive, personable and definite patient advocates.”

Recently a grandmother of a newborn visited an Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) partner hospital. She was there to visit her new grandson but also sought out hospital administration to share her appreciation for the presence of an OB/GYN hospitalist program and to share the difference they made in her life.
Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG), the largest dedicated OB/GYN hospitalist provider in the nation, announced their Physician of the Year for 2014 today. Dr. George Bailey has received this honor in recognition of his commitment to OBHG’s core values and embracing their vision of elevating the standard of women’s healthcare.
OBHG was founded on the sincere belief that every expectant mother presenting to the hospital should receive timely, consistent, unconditional, quality medical care by a highly-skilled, Board Certified OB/GYN. Dr. Bailey’s passion for that mission is evident to every patient he serves as an OBHG hospitalist at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital (YVMH) in Yakima, WA.
“He works hard, is dedicated to our philosophy and has been recognized by his peers as a leader,” said Dr. Mike White, OBHG West Coast Medical Director of Operations. “He is well respected and continues to endear himself to the nurses, his peers and administration. Being named OB Department Chair after just one year is a testament to his value.”
Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is proud to announce the opening of six new OB/GYN hospitalist programs in 2015. Just this month, OBHG has implemented programs for the following hospital partners:
• Swedish Covenant Hospital, Chicago IL
• Memorial Medical Center, Springfield, IL
• Atlanta Medical Center, Atlanta, GA
• Union Hospital, Terre Haute, IN
• El Camino Hospital Mountain View, Mountain View, CA
• El Camino Hospital Los Gatos, Los Gatos, CA
An OBHG hospitalist program provides highly-skilled, Board Certified OB/GYN physicians (hospitalists) on-site in a dedicated Obstetric Emergency Department (OBED) 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Ob Hospitalist Group and Union Hospital of Terre Haute, IN were recently featured in a local WTHITV newscast.

In this video, Abuid Rivera shares the story of a normal day taking a tragic turn. He describes how the presence of an Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) OB/GYN hospitalist at Halifax Health made the difference between possibly losing his wife and newborn daughter and sharing this Christmas with his miracle family.
After an ordinary day, Rivera’s pregnant wife awoke at 2:00 AM, within moments he realized something wasn’t quite right. She was cold and clammy and her lips were white. He called his wife’s OB/GYN, Dr. Pamela Carbiener who instructed him to take his wife directly to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. Dr. Carbiener left immediately to meet her patient there.
