St. Vincent OB Hospitalist Program provides specialized, round-the-clock care to pregnant women in emergency situations and if for any reason a patient's regular OB cannot be present at delivery.
Sometimes a woman's own physician can't be present during her delivery, whether it's because of a family emergency, another delivery, or any number of reasons. Having an OB Hospitalist Program means every woman can be confident that an experienced OB/GYN will be delivering her baby. That gives women and their families peace of mind during one of the most important moments of their lives.
Hospitalist care is a growing trend nationwide that helps increase access to specialists and improves patient outcomes. St. Vincent is the only hospital in the Tri-State to offer 24/7 in-house obstetrics, OB anesthesia, a well-established neonatology team, and the area's only Level II trauma center with an emphasis on trauma during pregnancy.
In addition, these board-certified OB/GYN Hospitalists:
- Work with each woman's own OB to provide 24/7 care to both mother and baby
- Complement other healthcare professionals within the hospital, including medical and surgical consultants, maternal fetal medicine, lactation consultants, social workers and more
- Receive specialized training, in addition to maintaining board certification
