A High Priority on Obstetrics Care
For many women, having a baby is their first experience in a hospital. We see obstetrics as a way to introduce these mothers and their families to the HCA way of patient care, and we are committed to equipping our physicians with the resources they need to ensure that it is a wonderful patient experience.
We deliver approximately 224,000 babies annually in 122 hospitals across 20 states. For our vulnerable preemies, we have more than 90 NICU’s in our system, all of which are Level II and above. HCA offers the full continuum of care with regard to obstetrics, including specialists in fertility, maternal-fetal medicine and neonatology.
Through our obstetrics program, our physicians are able to establish trusted relationships with mothers and their families. With the support of a talented and experienced labor and delivery nursing staff, updated facilities and provision of the many comforts that make for a safe and enjoyable childbirth, our obstetricians can focus on the delivery needs of their patients.
Strong Investment in Gynecological Technology
HCA is the largest purchaser of surgical robots in the world, and our gynecologists benefit from access to a fully developed robotics program that includes 225 Da Vinci robots. We invest heavily in this technology, which is proven to produce better outcomes, shorter hospital stays, reduced need for post-op pain medicine, less blood loss, and a faster return to activity.
We are investing in Telehealth for Women’s Services, an initiative that expands a physician’s ability to collaborate with other physicians, particularly for high-risk and unusual cases. Telehealth also helps our physicians grow a base of patients from areas that are traditionally underserved.
Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA, offers integrated cancer services in eight markets across the U.S., including comprehensive medical and surgical care and access to clinical trials for our GYN Oncology patients.
Support for Physicians
We have a plan for every mother who presents in labor, and we use a call system that doesn’t disproportionately depend on new physicians to handle walk-ins. Most of our obstetrics programs employ obstetrical hospitalists to provide in-patient support throughout the stay of mother and baby.
When physicians join Women’s Services at HCA, they are joining an organization with the resources to support them in their care for women at every stage of fertility and health.
