Brookwood Baptist Medical Center's new obstetrical emergency department (OBED) was recently featured in the local Birmingham, Alabama business journal. The OBED, developed and managed by Ob Hospitalist Group, will provide a safety net for patients and community OB/GYNs.
Amy Beard, the hospital's vice president of women's services, noted that circumstances around pregnancy and birth can be unpredictable.
"We are pleased to offer our patients peace of mind knowing they’ll receive immediate, specialized care no matter when they arrive at Brookwood Baptist Medical Center," she said.
Patient Courtney Farley told Brookwood staff she was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism displayed by the clinicians in the OBED.
“I was thankful that there was a special place for expecting women that was separate from the main ER," she said. "I felt cared for and safe. I believe that this is a service that takes Brookwood’s commitment to expecting mothers to the next level. I am grateful above all that my little one is safe, and I received my peace of mind because of this experience.
