OB Hospitalist Group and Obstetric Emergency Department (OBED) at NCH North Naples Hospital

As of December 2021, NCH has partnered with the largest OB hospitalist provider in the nation, OB Hospitalist Group, to have an experienced team of Obstetric (OB) clinicians on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer collaborative, non-competitive support to the local OBs.

The team will also provide 24/7 emergency OB services through the new Obstetric Emergency Department (Obstetric ED) at NCH North Naples Hospital to ensure that every patient, regardless of physician association or time of day, is seen by an OB immediately should there be an emergency.

Outpatient Services

If you are referred by your OB physician to NCH for services not available in their office, such as a nonstress test, biophysical profiles, iron infusion, RhoGAM and betamethasone, an order will be required.

These services are by appointment only, please discuss with your obstetrician’s office staff to schedule it. NCH has an OB emergency department, if you arrive at our facility without an appointment, we are required by Federal EMTALA regulations to treat you as an emergency room patient.

To avoid this, please have an appointment and order from your OB physician.

NCH is Committed to Help Babies Sleep Safely

There are about 3,400 sleep-related deaths among US babies each year. NCH supports the recommendations issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to reduce the risk of all sleep-related infant deaths, including SIDS. Please take the following steps to help your baby sleep safely and reduce the risk of sleep-related infant deaths, including Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

  • Place your baby on his or her back for all sleep times—naps and at night.
  • Use a firm, flat (not at an angle or inclined) sleep surface, such as a mattress in a safety-approved crib, covered by a fitted sheet.
  • Keep your baby’s sleep area (for example, a crib or bassinet) in the same room where you sleep, ideally until your baby is at least 6-months old.
  • Keep soft bedding such as blankets, pillows, bumper pads, and soft toys out of your baby’s sleep area.
  • Do not cover your baby’s head or allow your baby to get too hot. Signs your baby may be getting too hot include sweating or his or her chest feels hot.
  • Keep your baby away from smokers and places where people smoke.
  • Breastfeed as much and for as long as you can.
