    Yes to 24/7 dedicated OB anesthesia coverage

    Just over 500 deliveries/year and climbing

    OBs in building during "business" hours - on call rest of the time
    Same for Anesthesia

    Usually both can get there in 5-10 minutes, but winter is coming and we have already had a snow storm that delayed surgical crew for a crash section on a weekend. Good outcome though - that's all that matters in the end.

    We do about 4000 per year. We have a OB and Family medicine resident in house with a private practice OB that is their attending. We also have 24/7 anesthesia coverage on our floor. We also can have access to anesthesia personnel from the main OR if needed.
