Obstetrics & Gynecology
St. Barnabas Hospital is seeking a BC OB/GYN
SBH is a unique and forward thinking not-for-profit, non-denominational health system. We are the primary clinical affiliate of CUNY School of Medicine (formerly “Sophie Davis”). St. Barnabas Hospital is 460 bed acute care teaching hospital that provides care for an urban “safety net” population in mid-Bronx. SBH unfailingly receives high patient satisfaction scores, particularly in women’s health services.
SBH has a pleasant, renovated physical plant and, more importantly, a progressive and encouraging work culture. Our “Triple AIM Plus philosophy is dedicated to delivering superior patient care, improving the health and wellness of our patients and their community, doing so efficiently, and continuously cultivating staff and patient satisfaction. Our “Drive to Excellence” document is available your review. The hospital administration holds semi-monthly “town halls” for all employees and affiliated clinicians and are particularly supportive of the OB/GYN service.
SBH is currently constructing a unique Health and Wellness Center that has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Crain’s and other media. The Center will include low income housing, community services, and 40,000ft of clinical space, including an 18,000ft “Mind/Body Center and a nearly 10,000ft Woman’s’ Comprehensive Health Center. There is tremendous optimism about the future of our health system, even in these challenging financial times.
“St. Barnabas OBGYN” is a “captive P.C.” of SBH Health System–our clinical staff is employed by the PC or by Union Community Health Center, our sister FQHC. Our department includes 14 full-time OBGYNs, part-time MFMs (with 24/7 coverage), a part-time GYN Oncologist, and 8 experienced midwives and/or mid- level clinicians. Many of us have been at SBH for well over a decade, a testament our dedication to the department and our mission. We are a vibrant and cohesive group. Our clinicians cover the hospital with two physicians every night, holiday, and weekend. On weekdays, a midwife and a physician cover the service. Our practice provides care at three major clinic sites, three smaller “private style” offices, and a number of non-affiliated freestanding ambulatory sites. A significant percentage of our clientele speak Spanish. Translation phones are readily available but Spanish can be very helpful in this community.
We are joined by CUNY medical students and rotating residents. This model provides logistical support to our clinical staff and patients, as well as educational opportunities and academic inspiration, while also protecting the attendings’ opportunity to fully manage a broad spectrum of surgical opportunities.
We maintain ultrasound units in our L&D, fetal testing unit, OR, and ED as well as some of our ambulatory sites. We perform approximately 900-1000 deliveries annually amongst a relatively high-risk OB population; yet we carefully maintain a low cesarean section rate and unparalleled outcomes. We have onsite MFM services (including ultrasound imaging), 24hr anesthesia and neonatology coverage and a level 3a NICU.
St. Barnabas Hospital has 5 modern operating suites. We maintain the expertise and resources to provide a broad spectrum of minimally invasive surgery and basic uro-gynecologic procedures. We have a monthly urodynamics clinic and several specialty pelvic floor therapists. We also have on-site gynecologic oncology services including major surgeries.
SBH uses Sunrise Care Manager (Allscripts) for inpatient and outpatient documentation and eClinicalWorks in some of the smaller ambulatory sites. Labor care is documented and archived and in GE Centricity Perinatal (CPN/QS).
