At King's Daughters Medical Center, Ob/Gyn hospitalists have joined the physician team, partnering wiht our current obstetricans and gynecologists. These hospitalists monitor labor progress, deliver babies and handle emergency situations as they arise when a patient's physician is unavailable.
Ob/Gyn Hospitalist: Specializing in you!
While you are a patient in the maternity unit at King's Daughters, a member of our ob/gyn hospitalist team may be involved in your care. Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in caring for patients in the hospital setting. Ob/Gyn hospitalists further specialize in the management of labor and delivery, including examinations, evaluating the progress of labor, reviewing test results and fetal heart rate, delivery, surgical interventions and addressing any complications that may arise.
Ob/Gyn hospitalists are required to maintain high levels of clinical excellence and professional standards. In addition to board certification, Ob/Gyn hospitalists are required to have additional training to enhance their skills in all areas of obstetrics and gynecology.
The entire Maternal Child Health Team at King's Daughters works together to ensure that your medical records are available and that your birth plan is shared and accommodated. The Ob/Gyn hospitalists ensure that your attending physician receives complete report about your care in the hospital.
Patients who do not have a private physician will receive a referral or scheduled appointment for you and your baby after you go home. It is very important that mom and baby both keep these follow-up appointments.
