Louisville, KY - Ob Hospitalist Group(OBHG) is Proud to Announce Our 47th Hospital Partner, Norton Hospital – Downtown, in Louisville, KY.
Norton Hospital - Downtown opened their new Obstetrical Emergency Department (OBED) June 18, 2013. This new service is a result of a partnership between Norton Healthcare and OBHG that ensures highly-skilled, Board Certified OB/GYN physicians (hospitalists) are on-site at Norton Hospital 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This is the first of the two Norton Healthcare programs that OBHG will be opening this year.
Hospitalist care is a growing trend nationwide that helps increase access to specialists and improves patient outcomes. The OBED is staffed and managed by the Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG), headquartered in Mauldin, SC and provides much more than the traditional laborist model. In addition to physician support and emergent care to all women presenting to Norton Hospital - Downtown they also provide eductation, leadership and metrics in key quality and safety components. The hospitalist Team consists of Doctors, Roosevelt Walker, Melissa Allen, Bill Baker, Rita Fleming, Sharon Steele, Joseph Sauer and David Watlington. Dr. Matthew Conrad will serve as Medical Director of Operations for this team.
