Northwest Indiana Times: Cutting-edge care for expectant mothers at Porter Regional

OBHG's hospital partner, Porter Regional Hospital in Valparaiso, IN was featured in a recent article in the Northwest Indiana Times about the hospital's new OB hospitalist program and obstetrics emergency room.

Here are some excerpts from the article:

"While the standard of care at most hospitals is for a certified OB-Gyn nurse to evaluate an expectant mother upon arrival, at Porter Regional, an OB-Gyn physician is now on site to evaluate and begin tailored care for each mother."

In conjunction with the OB Hospitalists’ services, Porter Regional now provides an Emergency Room only for expectant mothers. “The OB Emergency Room consists of three rooms on the hospital’s fourth floor that are adjacent to our labor and delivery suites. Our main ER is very, very busy and not staffed by OB/Gyn physicians. This new OB Emergency Room is an excellent place for patients to be triaged and treated by an OB-Gyn,” said Dardeau.

We congratulate Porter Regional Hospital on their dedication to elevating the standard of women's health care!  Click here to read the full article.
