Steubenville, Ohio – As part of our continued commitment to the Ohio Valley community, Trinity Health System takes yet another bold step forward in the delivery of care. Effective July 1, 2019, Trinity Health System will launch an integrated obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN) practice. Beginning immediately, the ministry will recruit a women‚Äôs services team to include physicians, advanced practice nurses and support personnel to coordinate this new service line. As part of CommonSpirit Health, now the nation‚Äôs largest non-profit healthcare provider, we will utilize our national resources to locate quality providers. With our commitment to excellent care in the Ohio Valley, we will strive to create the premier women‚Äôs services program in the region.
‚ÄúOur goal is to transform the delivery of care and tailor the healthcare needs of each patient to improve outcomes and the healing process,‚Äù says Matt Grimshaw, CEO. ‚ÄúWe recognize that there is some uncertainty in our region with other healthcare providers. This decision reinforces our faithfulness in providing access to the care that is needed. The development of this dedicated women‚Äôs program within the Trinity Health System ministry will close any perceived gap in the provision of care for the women in our community.‚Äù
‚ÄúOur Birth Center staff is made up of some of the most experienced labor and delivery nurses in the local area,‚Äù Jim Middleton, Chief Nursing Officer. ‚ÄúThey are passionate and devoted to the women and families they serve.‚Äù
During this transitional period, if you have questions about our women‚Äôs services, please call 844-TPG-CALL.
