OB-GYN Hospitalist Program

Share    

The rapidly expanding demand for obstetric (OB) or obstetrical & gynecological (Ob-Gyn) hospitalists is reflective of the growth in its value to a hospital and its patients. Our access to qualified practitioners and a sound foundational program allow us flexibility in designing an Ob-Gyn hospitalist program to meet the unique needs of your hospital, healthcare system and community.

Why are Ob-Gyn hospitalists becoming so popular? Sometimes a baby won’t wait for the obstetrician to arrive. Even more challenging are the complexities and unexpected complications which put both patients and staff at risk. The 24/7 in-hospital availability of a board certified, qualified and experienced Ob-Gyn physicians offers a safety net for the hospital, nurses, medical staff, and most importantly, the patients. Further, according to the Society of OBGYN Hospitalists, a strong Ob-Gyn hospitalist service is proven to decrease malpractice costs. Our Ob-Gyn hospitalist programs work to improve quality, safety and outcomes.* (Society of OBGYN Hospitalists, 2016)

Better Quality of Care, Paramount Patient Safety, Happier Birthdays

Improving quality, safety and outcomes results in improved satisfaction for patients, clinicians and nurses. An Ob-Gyn hospitalist program fosters a more satisfied staff and higher retention. Whether you partner with independent practices or employ Ob-Gyn specialists, providing physicians the benefits of less time on call, decreased risk, 24/7 access to quality physicians for emergencies and clinical support, will all prove to be important factors in their decision about where to work or refer their patients.
