OB Hospitalists & OB ED
OB Hospitalists Program at REX Women’s Center
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in caring for patients while they are in the hospital. If your primary physician is not present when you arrive at the REX Women’s Center, our team of OB Hospitalists are here to help. They coordinate care with private OBGYN physicians to be sure all patients receive quality care in a timely manner and answer any questions you may have to help ensure a safe delivery for you and your baby.
UNC REX OB Hospitalists are available 24/7 to provide outstanding medical expertise and patient care for women at REX Women’s Center. They are highly skilled in a variety of different delivery techniques, maintain high levels of clinical performance and professional standards, are board certified for OB/GYN and in addition, required to have specialized training.
Like your primary physician, OB Hospitalists are familiar with key professionals in the hospital, including medical and surgical consultants, discharge planners, social workers, clergy and others. Our team will partner with your doctor to expedite care for you and easily facilitate connections with lactation consultants, providers of home healthcare, skilled nursing, specialized rehabilitation, and other services.
