Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center has welcomed a new partner in maternity care. Obstetrix® Medical Group, an affiliate of Mednax® and a leading provider of obstetric and maternal-fetal services, today launched its obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) hospitalist coverage available 24/7 to further support expectant mothers receiving care at the White Oak Medical Center.
“Continuing to provide our patients OB/GYN care around the clock has many benefits,” said Anthony Stahl, president, White Oak Medical Center. “Our new partners have specialized training and expertise allowing them to provide high-quality care to mothers at any time in their pregnancy at our Birth Center.”
The Obstetrix team will also provide coverage while a patient’s obstetrician or midwife is on the way to the hospital and will care for patients who don’t have an OB/GYN.
“Our OB/GYN hospitalist program has been providing maternal care to patients across the country for more than 14 years,” said Brian Gilpin, M.D., specialty medical officer, Mednax. “During that time, we have created an environment of safety in concert with our quality leaders and have been the driving force to integrate with both maternal-fetal medicine and neonatology. We look forward to partnering with White Oak Medical Center to combine our clinical expertise and provide world-class women’s health care to the counties the hospital serves.”
