Safe, quality and compassionate care when your physician is delayed or unavailable

We respect the importance of the relationship you have built with your physician. When your physician is delayed or not available, the obstetric hospitalists on the medical staff will provide the skilled, compassionate care you expect for your delivery. A hospitalist is a physician who cares for patients exclusively in the hospital.

Hospital-based physicians on the medical staff are available 24 hours to provide safe, quality care.

If your physician is not available, the OB hospitalist can examine and evaluate you. If you need to be admitted, the OB hospitalist can manage your labor and even deliver your baby at the request of your physician.

Through cooperation and communication between your physician and the OB hospitalist, you and your baby will receive safe, quality and compassionate care throughout the childbirth experience.
