Last year, a woman I was caring for in labor & delivery almost died.
She was suffering from an embolism characterized by sudden cardiorespiratory collapse and acute hemorrhage. In the simplest terms, she nearly died from an allergic reaction to amniotic micro-substances in her bloodstream that can cause severe bleeding and inability to provide oxygen to the organs in her body.
On April 29, 2018, The Norman Transcript published an interview with Norman Regional Health System CEO Richie Splitt. The Norman, OK-based hospital system has launched several new initiatives recently, one of which being its development of an Ob Hospitalist Group obstetrics emergency department at the Norman Regional HealthPlex.
This past week, healthcare professionals from around the country flocked to Austin, TX for The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Annual Meeting. During the meeting, which ran from April 27-30, ACOG aired daily TV segments that played on a closed circuit network throughout the conference hall and surrounding locations. OBHG's Senior Director of Medical Operations Dr. Charlie Jaynes was featured on one of these segments, and he had the opportunity to speak about some issues and initiatives that are high priority for both him as a physician and OBHG as an organization.
We've expanded our national network! On April 4, 2018, OBHG launched a Type A obstetrics emergency department within Baylor Scott & White McKinney in McKinney, TX. This is the fifth OBHG partnership to begin in 2018.
About one in three babies is delivered via C-section in the U.S. It's the most common surgery in the nation.
While much has been written about the need to reduce or eliminate unnecessary cesarean sections, many are unavoidable - but can also leave a mother feeling that she missed a crucial part of the experience.

Ob Hospitalist Group Medical Director of Business Development Dr. Jane van Dis was one of the prominent national experts quoted in a recent U.S. News and World Report article.
The piece, geared toward aspiring medical students, discusses what up-and-coming OB/GYNs should look for when they choose a medical school.
On National Doctor’s Day 2018, Ob Hospitalist Group recognizes the crucial, life changing work our hospitalists do each and every day.
Founded by an obstetrician who envisioned a better, safer way to deliver emergency OB care and offer clinicians a more balanced personal lifestyle, Ob Hospitalist Group provides unparalleled support for our employed physicians, along with benefits for the private OB/GYNs who practice near or have admitting privileges at our 130 partner hospitals across the nation.
When it comes to her specialty, Dr. Lydia Sims has pretty much done it all.
Fresh out of residency, she developed a much-needed prenatal program – which is still in operation today – at a public health clinic in San Antonio. She worked as a contract OB/GYN for the U.S. military, joined private group practices in Kentucky and Louisiana, and was employed by a large healthcare corporation. She also founded a successful solo practice which she operated for 13 years.
Dr. Sims notes that the industry has gone through a lot of changes in the past decade, and that many OBs are faced with numerous, draining tasks that can take precious time and energy away from patient care.
“In private practice you’re doing more than just providing medical care to your patient, because you’re so busy with who’s working today, who’s going to show up tomorrow, co-pays, insurance companies, filling out piles of forms, and government requirements,” she says. “It was taking the fun out of medicine.”
