Women’s Health Services at UH Elyria Medical Center
Beginning November 1, 2023, labor and delivery services for UH Elyria OB/GYN patients will be offered at UH St. John Medical Center in Westlake.
This reorganization creates a center of excellence for labor and delivery in the UH western region. Concentrating services at one location will increase patient volume and ultimately enhance the quality of care we provide. National studies confirm that increasing the number of similar procedures at a hospital improves patient care, patient safety and patient experience.
UH Elyria OB/GYN patients can continue to receive pregnancy and post-delivery care at UH Elyria Medical Center and UH Medical Practice. In addition to women’s and children’s services, we offer:
- OB/GYN physician and midwife care
- Lactation consultation and support
- The Hampson Mole Breast Health Suite
- GYN and breast surgical services
- Pediatric emergency services in the UH Rainbow-branded Emergency Department on the UH Elyria campus
An expansion of onsite services also is planned for at-risk pregnant women, pregnant women with diabetes and pregnant women with medical complications.
