Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob/Gyn) provides comprehensive obstetrical and gynecological care for women of all ages. Our newly renovated maternity service offers single-bedded, private, family-friendly labor and delivery rooms; private postpartum rooms with rooming-in services; state-of-the-art equipment; and an advanced security system.

The spacious newborn nursery has fully-equipped Neonatal Intensive Care, Intermediate Care, and Continuing Care Units; a well-baby nursery; and a dedicated breastfeeding education room. As a Level 3 nursery and member of the Regional Perinatal Center at Bellevue Hospital, we are capable of caring for the most acutely sick or at-risk pregnant women and newborns.

Your primary Ob/Gyn provider will work with you to manage your care and coordinate referrals to other services. The caregivers are board certified/eligible physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and certified midwives. We offer free language assistance services to patients who do not speak English well.
