We are excited to welcome Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, FL to the OBHG family! In early June, we kicked off a part-time OB triage program with plans to convert to a full-time, type A OBED in year two. This is OBHG's 10th partnership to start in 2019.
The family practice residency program at Cox Medical Center South once relied on a single community OB/GYN for on-call C-section coverage and OB support. Cox South, located in Springfield, MO, has a high-risk patient population, with a large portion of patients on Medicaid. The residency program accepts high-risk patient transfers from its partner maternal fetal medicine practice, which are even higher risk. Residents were tasked with caring for these high-risk OB patients with minimal support.
How long does it take for an OBHG program to make a difference? In less than one week, Mercy Hospital Fort Smith is already seeing positive impacts of the hospital’s new obstetric emergency department easing tension off the main emergency department.
