Maintaining maternal care in your community requires a lot of pieces
You’re dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of the women in your community. You have most of the pieces, but what happens if one of your providers scales back or decides to retire?
Many hospitals face staffing strains and even contemplate cutting crucial women’s services. If you’re ready to connect the missing pieces of your women’s health services, Maternal Health Access Solutions (powered by Ob Hospitalist Group) can help. We’re working with hospitals like yours to fill in the gaps. Our custom, flexible OB/GYN solutions can help maintain or extend your women’s services, improve maternal care outcomes, keep patients in the community and support nurses and physicians.
Keeping women’s healthcare services in your community
Whether you need help in the clinic or labor and delivery unit support, we’ll work with you to cultivate a solution that works for your hospital’s unique needs. Drawn from our experience and success working with more than 200 hospital partners across the country, our custom solutions are distinct from our OB hospitalist models.
Many of our tailored solutions include a variety of offerings (such as nurse practitioners or certified nurse midwife clinic coverage), and are aimed at impacting outcomes and bridging gaps so women don’t have to travel great distances for care.
While OBHG’s traditional full-time and part-time OB hospitalist models are the right fit for many hospitals, others need something different. OBHG’s Maternal Health Access Solutions offer alternative options that are customized to meet the local needs of each individual hospital. Many of these options can be paired together.
