Ob Hospitalist Program at Milford Memorial

“Hospitalist” is the general term for physicians who specialize in caring for hospitalized patients. The Ob Hospitalist Program at Bayhealth Milford Memorial provides 24/7/365 on-site hospitalist services for obstetrics and gynecology. 
While many obstetricians divide their time between their office and the hospital, this program features hospital-based doctors focused solely on providing care to patients in the labor and delivery unit, as well as those facing emergency situations. These doctors will provide enhanced coverage and a critical safety net to OB/GYNs in our community.
When you arrive at Labor and Delivery, the OB/GYN hospitalist will:
  • Coordinate care with your primary physician
  • Evaluate the progress of your labor
  • Review test results and fetal heart rate tracings
  • Stay on top of any problems that may be evolving
  • Ensure a safe delivery for you and your baby
