We are excited to welcome Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, FL to the OBHG family! In early June, we kicked off a part-time OB triage program with plans to convert to a full-time, type A OBED in year two. This is OBHG's 10th partnership to start in 2019.
"Internationally recognized as a premier institution for Children’s healthcare, we are extremely excited to be afforded this opportunity to be among the first group providing obstetrical services at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital," said Ryan Vaughan, OBHG director of hospital operations. "With our partnership, the hospital has opened a brand new, state-of-the-art fetal care unit which will allow low-risk mothers with high-risk babies to deliver closer to their NICU to minimize risk and complications previously experienced during transports. This endeavor should serve as a testament to OBHG’s commitment to providing a higher level of care to women and babies in their respective communities and beyond."
