Plumas District Hospital Opens Its Revamped OB Delivery Services
Quincy, CA (Nov. 1, 2021)
As promised, Plumas District Hospital will resume all OB services, including deliveries on Nov. 1. Our commitment, as always, is on providing the safest and highest quality services possible. To that end, and after listening to the needs of our maternity patients, we have reimagined our OB program to include hospital midwifery services.
We’ve hired an exceptionally qualified Director of Midwife Services, Lori Link, to oversee the creation of this program. She has experience in creating and sustaining hospital midwifery programs. She will bring energy and vision to this new program, and we are excited to have her with us. In addition, we are actively recruiting a second midwife to work with her. We’ll have more on this new program and the Director of Midwifery Services very soon.
In an innovative move, our new Certified Nurse Midwives will also have Labor and Delivery nursing experience so they’ll also be able to serve in the nursing role with our current OB physicians. This will help ensure that there is always adequate nursing coverage during deliveries.
“We are very pleased to have our labor and delivery program open again,” said CEO JoDee Read, adding, “it’s a vital part of our mission to fully serve our community.”
