Highland Health Providers’ Physicians for Women practice, in partnership with Adams County Regional Medical Center, will be expanding obstetrics and gynecology services to Adams County and the surrounding communities, the two organizations announced last week.
Beginning May 2021, appointments will be available for both obstetrics and gynecological needs at the Women’s Health Clinic located in Winchester, Ohio. While expecting mothers will deliver at Highland District Hospital, routine, pre-delivery obstetrics care, general women’s care for those in all phases of life, preventative care, and evaluations for common surgical care needs will occur at the Winchester location.
“Adams County Regional Medical Center has a strong focus in advancing women’s healthcare in our region, and we are excited to be taking this natural next step,” said Alan Bird, Chief Executive Officer of ACRMC. “Growing our women’s health service line ensures a healthy future for our community, preserves quality healthcare, and integrates care so our patients have a superior, patient-first experience.”
“We share a long tradition of delivering high-quality women’s healthcare with a focus on clinical excellence, patient education, and personalized care. We are confident that by collaborating with Highland Health Providers, we can sustain and expand our community’s access to care,” said Rachel Cummings, Chief Nursing Officers of ACRMC.
“We are excited to bring comprehensive women’s health coverage to this area. In addition to providing diagnosis and treatment for gynecological needs, we will also be expanding routine obstetrics care to expecting mothers who otherwise had to travel many miles for that care. We are privileged to offer these services here,” stated Highland Health Providers’ Executive Director, Michael Alden.
Centered on serving the medically underserved, Highland Health Providers is a Federally Qualified Health Center that serves the Highland County community in six locations throughout Hillsboro, Greenfield, Lynchburg, and the Rocky Fork Lake area.
