OB Hospitalist Program
Our laborist program ensures 24 hour a day, 365 day a year support for
you and your baby. To make sure we have Board Certified OB/GYN physicians
on-site at all times, we have partnered with OB Hospitalist Group (OBHG) to offer specialized obstetric services and the timeliest care for expectant mothers.
When you arrive at Huntington Hospital, you will be evaluated by emergent-care
experienced OB/GYNs and have immediate access to the best obstetric surgical
care possible if emergency life-saving surgeries for mother and baby are
necessary. The laborist program offers patients and family members'
peace of mind during one of the most important moments of their lives;
when literally a matter of minutes can make a life-saving difference.
In addition to providing patient care, the physicians in the OB Hospitalist
program will serve as in-house back-up for patients wishing to attempt
Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) under the supervision of their personal
OB/GYN and can serve as assistant surgeons for Huntington’s private
OB physicians. They will also lead the labor & delivery unit simulation
training for obstetric emergencies - a practice that has proven to decrease
morbidity and mortality in life-threatening situations.
