We are pleased to announce our 19th new partnerhip of 2018! OBHG worked with WakeMed Cary Hospital in Cary, NC to launch a full-time, Type A obstetric emergency department earlier this month.
As part of Healthcare Quality Week, OBHG is focusing on the importance of quality, risk reduction and regulatory compliance in maximizing the quality of care delivered to patients throughout our network of OB hospitalist programs.
Today, OBHG Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mark Simon sent a letter to the House Ways and Means Committee raising concerns about the country’s maternal mortality rate. In his letter, Dr. Simon warned that one of the primary challenges to improving U.S. maternal-fetal outcomes is clinical discrepancies in how care is delivered for pregnant women.
Every day, OBHG’s clinical and operational leadership teams support our hospitalists in their programs. The medical director of operations, regional vice president of operations, and director of hospital operations work to help ensure that programs run smoothly and facilitate hospitalists’ success.
Dr. Alissa Erogbogbo, medical director of operations for the region that includes Northern California and Nevada, has been with OBHG since 2015.
OBHG actively works to support and cultivate our clinician leaders. To reinforce that commitment, OBHG sponsored its National Clinical Leadership Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, on Oct. 11-12, 2018. Nearly 90 clinical leaders gathered for education, connection and discussion at the annual meeting.
We’ve all heard the shocking statistic by now: the U.S. has the highest maternal death rate of any developed country – 26.4 per 100,000 births. USA TODAY has been investigating this issue in its “Deadly Deliveries” series since July, when they repeatedly contacted 75 hospitals in 13 states to find out if they were following best practice safety protocols. Half wouldn’t answer the questions.
OBHG is now hiring exceptional OB/GYNs for highly desirable new positions and programs in the Lone Star State!
OBHG certified midwives Aspen Green and Natalie Martina recently coauthored an article for Midwifery Today titled “Smooth Transitions: Making Hospital Transfers Better.”
Please join us in congratulating Drs. Rakhi Dimino and Jane Van Dis on their recent appointments to the 2018/2019 Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists (SOGH) board of directors.
We are proud to announce our new partnership with Plantation General Hospital in Plantation, FL! OBHG kicked off our 18th program of 2018 in mid-September as a full-time Type A obstetric emergency department. Plantation General Hospital is part of the HCA East Florida Division.
