Conemaugh Physician Group – OB/GYN is welcoming OB patients who are impacted by the closing of Windber Medical Center’s obstetric program at the end of March.
“For the past several years, The Labor and Delivery department at Conemaugh Memorial has extended obstetrical care for complicated and high risk pregnancies for the Windber OB GYN patients. We understand that the change of providers can be difficult, especially when a complication is involved. With every patient we have striven to ensure that the transition of care is seamless and have provided them with the same care as we do for our own patients.” says Dr. Adib Khouzami, Chairman of Women’s Services at Conemaugh Memorial. “We want to make sure those in need of a new obstetrician know that Conemaugh Memorial physicians, Midwives, Nurse Practitioners and staff are here to welcome them. We will do everything we can to ensure a smooth and timely transition of care.”
Earlier this month, Conemaugh Physician Group – OB/GYN added a new physician to the group. Dr. Bora Oezgueler is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is experienced in minimally invasive, laparoscopic gynecological surgery and looks forward to performing robotic assisted gynecology surgery at Conemaugh Memorial. He will be seeing patients at Conemaugh OB/GYN’s office at Conemaugh Richland at 1481 Eisenhower Boulevard.
“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Oezgueler to the team,” adds Dr. Khouzami. “He brings great experience and will no doubt enhance the services we provide.”
Led by the physicians, midwives and nurse practitioners of the Conemaugh Physician Group, Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center is once again among the top 5 percent in the nation for excellence in women’s healthcare and maternity care, according to HealthGrades, the leading provider of consumer healthcare information.
Conemaugh Memorial was one of only 3 hospitals in Pennsylvania to be in the top 5% in the nation for maternity care outcomes and the only hospital in the region to receive this award. Babies delivered at Conemaugh Memorial are backed by the resources of the region’s only Level 3 (highest level) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“We know this is a challenging time for patients,” says April Behory, Director of Woman/Child Services at Conemaugh. “We encourage them to visit our website www.conemaugh.org where they can learn more about our providers, take a virtual tour of our facility and hear from other patients who have experienced our program. We want to assure them that we have capacity for new patients and also invite anyone interested to contact us for a personal tour of our maternity unit. The number to call for a tour is 814-534-3695.
