OBHG’s new OB hospitalist program at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Georgia proved its worth on the first day. Hours after the program launched, an expectant mother arrived in distress. She was immediately seen by Dr. Davis Sullivan, OBHG hospitalist and site medical director at Phoebe Putney.
Within a short time of the patient’s arrival, Dr. Sullivan completed the high-risk delivery and mother and baby are now doing well.
“There has been a big focus on patient safety over the last three or four years (in obstetrics),” said Sullivan. “This is about patient welfare. This is not a marketing tool. This is about patient safety.”
