In November, Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) reached a historic milestone in the growth of our company. As of November 16th, OBHG expanded its national network of OB hospitalist services with the start of our 100th partner hospital. Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines is our first program in the state of Iowa. This is a milestone that appropriately heralds our 10 years as the nation’s largest dedicated OB/GYN hospitalist provider.
Greenville, SC -- Nearly a dozen Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) partner hospitals were included on a list recently released by the California Health and Human Services Agency of hospitals in that state that have successfully reduced their cesarean section (C-section) rates.
According to the Agency, 104 California hospitals “have met or surpassed a federal goal aimed at reducing C-section births for first-time moms with low-risk pregnancies.”
Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is proud to have been named to South Carolina’s 25 Fastest-Growing Companies list for the fifth consecutive year. OBHG is ranked 24 in 2016 in part due to a significant growth in revenue.
Founded in 2006, OBHG’s national network has grown to include over 500 dedicated OB hospitalists in 100 active and onboarding partner hospitals across 26 states. This growth means more expectant mothers have access to immediate care when presenting to the hospital with obstetrical complaints, regardless of time, location, complication, or circumstance.
At the very beginning of his obstetrics career, Dr. Chris Swain was astonished to learn that many expectant mothers, concerned that something might be wrong, did not even see a physician when they came to the emergency room. Instead, they were evaluated by a Labor and Delivery nurse taking instructions over the phone from a physician. If the patient and her baby were in serious distress, it became a waiting game, with the risk escalating every minute she waited for medical attention from her doctor — or any doctor.
Sometimes, how things are supposed to work in baby land is not particularly intuitive. From car seats to snuggly Baby Bjorn-type body carriers, there often seems to be an extra strap whose function is not obvious. Directions in small print can be hard to follow, which may account for the high numbers of parents who inadvertently risk the safety of their young children by incorrectly assembling or installing various devices.
September is Baby Safety Month, an annual event sponsored by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) to raise awareness about the importance of product registration cards and recall response. Recently in this space, we discussed crib safety. Now we are moving on to car seat installation and other baby-related concerns.
Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is proud to have been named to the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America list for a fourth consecutive year. OBHG is ranked 2,324 in 2016 in part due to a 156% growth in revenue over the last three years.
Founded in 2006, OBHG’s national network has grown to include more than 450 dedicated OB hospitalists in 100 active and onboarding partner hospitals across 27 states. This growth means more expectant mothers have access to immediate care when presenting to the hospital with obstetrical complaints regardless of time, location, complication, or circumstance.

Obstetrical emergency care units offer pregnant women highly-specialized emergency care as a better alternative to the traditional emergency room visit. These units have been proven to increase patient satisfaction and improve emergency room wait time lengths. Where are they being utilized, and what are the barriers to implementing them nationwide?
Host Renee Allen talks with guests Dr. Brian Gilpin, National Clinical Director of Operations for OB Hospitalists at Mednax National Medical Group, and Dr. Christopher Swain, Founder and Chief Medical Officer for Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG). They discuss the benefits and challenges of obstretical emergency care units.
