Obstetrics and Gynecology
Stardust Birthing Center Video Tour
At Auburn Community Hospital, we strive to provide compassionate and comprehensive women's health care by delivering specialized programs with individualized care. Our Obstetrics Program includes all aspects of pregnancy, labor, delivery and post partum care. Our Gynecological Program focuses on the special needs for women beyond obstetrics. Both programs are administered in collaboration with a woman's primary care provider.
Members of our OB/GYN team include physicians with specialties in obstetrics and gynecology. They're supported by nurses with special training and all of the other resources of our hospital to provide a comprehensive level of care for any patient need. For the increased safety of our patients and their newborns, many of our nurses are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
