South Shore Midwifery & Gynecology Joins Jordan Health Systems
March 28, 2011
Jordan Health Systems, Inc., is pleased to announce that South Shore Midwifery & Gynecology (SSMG) of Weymouth and Hanover, MA, has joined Jordan Health Systems and opened a third office at Jordan Hospital in Plymouth, MA. The addition of SSMG to Jordan Health Systems expands the number of midwives available to South Shore and Cape Cod patients who are looking for patient-centered birth with midwifery support and high family satisfaction.
For nearly 20 years, SSMG has provided high-quality, sensitive, and personalized healthcare for women on the South Shore. The midwives at SSMG joined Jordan Health Systems to provide their patients with the birth experience they want through Jordan Hospital’s BirthPlace.
“We joined Jordan Health Systems to be a part of their growing obstetrical and BirthPlace program. The nursing staff at the BirthPlace has an excellent reputation for supporting the normal birth process. They take the time to work with their patients in labor and support their choices,” says Agnes Densmore, CNM, executive director, SSMG.
Jordan Hospital’s BirthPlace provides women with a skilled anesthesia team for 24/7 epidurals. Additionally, the BirthPlace provides women with non-medicated options such as water labor and delivery.
“We are excited that we will now be able to offer birthing options in a warm, intimate, and inviting atmosphere that has come to define our brand of care,” adds Densmore.
Jordan Hospital’s BirthPlace is lead by Dr. Brigid McCue who provides a laborist model of care. A laborist is a hospital-based obstetrician available for consults or co-management of patients. Women who deliver at the BirthPlace receive 24/7 laborist-midwife coverage and nursery care.
“The midwives at South Shore Midwifery and Gynecology provide an outstanding level of care for their patients and their presence at the BirthPlace provides women on the South Shore and Cape Cod with enhanced birthing options,” says Jordan Hospital BirthPlace Medical Director Brigid McCue, MD. “We will now be able to offer more women the option of a midwife birth at the BirthPlace.”
Jordan Hospital’s BirthPlace has a strong clinical affiliation with Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children. A maternal-fetal medicine specialist from Tufts Medical Center and a neonatologist from Floating Hospital for Children are on-site to provide specialized care, if needed. In addition, Jordan Hospital operates a new Level 1B Continuing Care Nursery for premature and term newborns who require extra time to mature before going home.
