Choosing an Obstetrician
Our doctors at Charlotte OB/GYN, Eastover OB/GYN, NorthCross OB/GYN and CMC Women's Institute and staff have the privilege of delivering over 6,000 babies a year, nearly twice as many as any other hospital in the region. We take the experience of childbirth seriously by making sure that mothers who have been induced or are in their second stage of labor have a one-to-one nurse-to-patient ratio.
Carolinas Medical Center is the Regional Perinatal Center, with the largest neonatal intensive care nursery in the Carolinas, as well as the only ECMO (heart/lung respiratory assistance) system in the region. Carolinas Medical Center provides 24-hour neonatologist, perinatologist and anesthesiologist care as well as around the clock availability of every kind of specialist imaginable.
