What is a Hospitalist?

A hospitalist is a physician who cares for patients inside a hospital with no outside practice. Our OB/GYN Hospitalists are available 24/7 and are always onsite to provide supportive care in labor and delivery and postpartum units.


What Do OB/GYN Hospitalists Do?

Our mission is to elevate the standard of women’s healthcare in South Texas by ensuring every expectant mother, regardless of time of day or physician association, is seen by a physician right away if she needs urgent care.
