OBHG is excited to announce our third program go-live of 2018 at Our Lady of Lourdes in Binghamton, NY. Our Lady of Lourdes, part of the Ascension Health system, has a full-time OBHG triage.
Ob Hospitalist Group is pleased to announce our second new partnership of 2018, MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, CA. Orange Coast's OB hospitalist program launched on March 7, and it features full-time triage.
Earlier this month, the California Health and Human Service Agency (CHHS) and Smart Care California released their 2017 C-section honor roll, recognizing hospitals that met or surpassed a 23.9 percent C-section birth rate for first-time mothers with low-risk pregnancies. OBHG is proud that 11 of our 18 California hospital partners made the honor roll, and all but one made the list for two consecutive years. The full honor roll lists 111 hospitals, accounting for 45 percent of California's 242 hospitals that offer maternity services.
Ob Hospitalist Group is proud to announce the launch of our latest hospitalist program at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, N.J. earlier this month. Ocean Medical Center is part of the Hackensack Meridian Health system and is a 281-bed community hospital. Our partnership is beginning as a part-time triage and will transition to a Type A obstetric emergency department in early 2018.
In late November, we launched our latest OB hospitalist program at United Regional Health Care System in Wichita Falls, Texas.
We have hired a team of highly skilled, board-certified OB clinicians to run this new obstetric emergency department (from left to right): Dr. Audrey Puentes; Dr. Edward Clark; Dr. Julie Thomas; Dr. Miguel Cintron; Dr. Gaynelle Rolling; and Dr. Cheng Song. Dr. Song and Dr. Clark will provide backup coverage, and Dr. Cintron will serve as the program's team lead.
We are proud to announce that three Ob Hospitalist Group partner hospitals in the Richmond, Va. area were named Richmond’s Favorite Place to Have a Baby in Style Weekly’s annual Family Favorites poll. Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital in Richmond, Va.; Bon Secours St. Francis Medical Center in Midlothian, Va.; and Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center in Mechanicsville, Va. were named first, second, and third, respectively. We are fortunate to have such wonderful partnerships with the clinical teams at these hospitals so we are able to collaboratively raise the bar when it comes to women's healthcare!
Last week, the American Association of Birth Centers (AABC) honored the Ob Hospitalist Group team at Providence Alaska Medical Center with the Collaborating Physician Award for the empathetic and quality patient care they give to patients coming to the hospital from community birthing centers.
A shift on labor and delivery units for Ob Hospitalist Group clinicians can be punctuated by quiet moments—and then sometimes there’s a hurricane.
The entire country watched as Hurricane Harvey barreled toward the Texas coast, bringing with it high winds of 130 miles an hour and horrendous flooding. On Aug. 25, the Category 4 hurricane crashed into the coast just northeast of Corpus Christi and dumped an estimated more than 50 inches of rain in some areas, according to the National Weather Service. "This is a landmark event for Texas," Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said. "Texas has never seen an event like this."
