OBHG partnership enables OB/GYN and midwifery practices to thrive

Good Samaritan Hospital, in Suffern, NY, was looking to improve patient safety in their labor and delivery unit, support their midwifery practice and alleviate the on-call burden for community obstetricians. The facility partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group to launch a new hospitalist program in 2017, and local midwifery and OB/GYN practices have been thriving ever since.

"We would never want to go back to not having a hospitalist program. We don’t have the infrastructure administratively to do this on our own,” said Dr. Patricia Pollio, director of OB/GYN at Good Samaritan.
