In our Mission to serve with the greatest care and love, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center now provides laborists for your safety and peace of mind.
Laborists are OB-GYN physicians who are at the hospital 24-hrs a day, seven days a week, providing our patients with specialized care.
Should any emergencies arise, they will be on hand to care for you and your baby and assist your physician once he or she arrives.
Our Laborists Services Include:
- Emergency deliveries
- Delivery assistance
- Immediate care and evaluation
- OB-GYN care for patients without a physician
Our laborists will be able to monitor you and baby from the moment you are admitted to the hospital, and, if necessary, deliver your baby.
This service is not designed to replace your OB-GYN, but provide you with an extra level of protection in the event your physician is not present do to unforeseen circumstances or an emergency.
