Celebration Obstetrics and Gynecology is thrilled to share the addition of the Hospitalist Program as part of our care team. The Hospitalist Program was specially designed to improve the quality of care for patients. Obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) hospitalists are physicians who assume the care of laboring women, manage obstetric triage, and handle in-hospital obstetric emergencies.
