Obstetric Hospitalists

Overview

Service effective July 27, 2022.

No matter what time you or your unborn baby may need care, Oaklawn partners, Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG), will ensure that a skilled provider will be immediately available to evaluate and treat you. If your regular obstetric provider is unavailable or delayed, the on-site OB hospitalist will review your medical record and birth plan with your physician to accommodate your delivery wishes, depending on your medical circumstances. The OB hospitalist caring for you will deliver a complete treatment report to your doctor, so you receive consistent and thorough care. If you do not have a provider, the OB hospitalist will also be available to assist you.

OB hospitalists care for pregnant women while they’re in the hospital and their doctor isn’t available. Stationed in the hospital 24/7, these highly skilled clinicians do not replace the care patients receive from their regular provider. Instead, they serve as an extension of the patient’s regular doctor and the high-quality care that doctor provides. In addition to handling deliveries, OB hospitalists are there to assist with any issues and emergencies that may arise, whether or not patients have their own doctors in route. This includes anything from elevated blood pressure to more serious issues that may require immediate surgery.

At Oaklawn, Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) physicians are standing by around-the-clock to help women who are pregnant or have just given birth. OBHG’s mission is to ensure that every expectant mother receives consistent medical care by a highly skilled clinician when presenting to the hospital labor and delivery department.

With an onsite OB/GYN specialized in delivering care to pregnant patients, there is always a physician ready to provide immediate, comprehensive care – delivering an extra layer of safety.
