2021 Women’s Choice Award

Award Winning Care

Baptist Medical Center East has been named a Women’s Choice Award hospital for Obstetrics for the past seven years. This designation identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence and what women say they want from a hospital. This award represents our commitment to quality care and patient safety for both mother and baby.

Now offering Emergency OB Care

Baptist Medical Center East is now home to the ONLY OB Emergency Department in Central Alabama.

In an effort to provide EXCELLENT care to our patients, we have partnered with the OB Hospitalist Group to ensure an OB/GYN physician (hospitalist) is on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our shared mission is to elevate the standard of women’s healthcare by ensuring every expectant mother is evaluated and treated by a physician regardless of time, location, complication or circumstance. These highly skilled, Board-Certified OB/GYNs provide consistent care to patients in the hospital and emergency care to those who may need it when they arrive.

In the event that your physician is not available, the OB/GYN hospitalists can examine and evaluate the progress of your labor, review test results and fetal heart rate tracings, stay on top of any problems that may be evolving, and provide you and your baby with a safe delivery, while working closely and communicating with your physician or midwife.

At Baptist Health we are ready for every situation, especially the ones that you are not planning on. Having an OB Hospitalist Group onsite 24/7 has saved the lives of mothers and babies throughout the country and we are proud to now offer this service right here at home.
