Enhanced emergency care for women


The Women’s Hospital is proud to introduce the first emergency department in the state of Indiana dedicated solely to obstetric and gynecologic care.

If you have an emergency during pregnancy or an urgent matter with your
gynecologic health, The Women’s Hospital’s OB/GYN Emergency Department is here to provide the highest level of care.

Get immediate assessment and intervention for urgent obstetric and gynecologic conditions such as:

  • Pain and bleeding in early pregnancy
  • Preterm labor
  • Conditions related to high-risk pregnancy (example: high blood pressure)
  • Post-operative GYN surgery complications
Each patient who comes to the Emergency Department at The Women’s Hospital will be seen by a physician who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology.

Our board-certified OB/GYN hospitalist physicians will be here 24 hours a day to care for you. Our physicians work with your primary OB/GYN provider to give immediate care and make decisions for hospital admission or discharge with follow-up plans.

The OB/GYN Emergency Department is staffed with physicians, registered nurses and other caregivers, such as ultrasound staff, who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology. Our highly skilled team is designed to provide care especially for women. With state of the art technology and support of 24-hour, in-hospital anesthesiologists, we are equipped to handle obstetric emergencies with confidence.
