OB hospitalists provide consistency of care and staffing for growing hospital
UHS Wilson Medical Center was working with a private physician group at the time. Coverage of the obstetrics emergency department (OBED) by the private group was not consistent, leading to safety concerns.
UHS Wilson Medical Center partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG), beginning as a part-time program. Since then, the partnership has grown into a busy full-time program.
OB hospitalist partnership supports community obstetricians and nurses
Blessing Hospital’s labor and delivery model was reactionary. When an OB patient arrived, a nurse performed an assessment and called one of the eight community OBs, who were stressed from being pulled in multiple directions, and challenged by frequently needing to be in the hospital.
Blessing Hospital partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group to provide consistent care to all of their patients and provide a layer of safety that wasn’t there in the past.
An award-winning hospital elevates the quality and safety of their women’s healthcare line

CA hospitalists often first line of defense against congenital syphilis outbreak
Between 2012 and 2014, cases of congenital syphilis tripled in California. The staff at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital in Bakersfield, CA, found that most women who gave birth to babies with congenital syphilis had no private physician and received very little or no prenatal care. Bakersfield’s understaffed labor and delivery triage unit was often the first and only caregiver these women had seen.
Bakersfield Memorial worked with Ob Hospitalist Group to establish 24/7 labor and delivery triage coverage to ensure that a board-certified OB/GYN was present to evaluate every at-risk pregnant woman and test her for syphilis.
