At McDonough District Hospital, we know how seriously you take your health. The female body is unique because women undergo biological functions that men do not, including menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, among others. Our board-certified obstetricians and gynecologists (OB/GYNs) provide women’s health services for women of all ages, including adolescents who have just started menstruating, expectant pregnant women, and women going through menopause. No matter your female reproductive health condition or concern, we can help.

The best way a woman can protect her health is by practicing good preventative care and seeing her OB/GYN for regular checkups, usually once per year, depending on what your provider thinks is necessary. During your checkups, your OB/GYN may conduct evaluations or collect samples for lab tests to check for specific diseases, such as taking a cervical smear to check the cells from a routine pap test. Other women may wish to see their OB/GYN for sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing, especially if they are sexually active but not in a committed monogamous relationship. The tests your OB/GYN recommends will vary depending on your overall health, age, and sexual history.

Pregnancy, Labor, & Delivery at MDH

Women frequently see an OB/GYN during pregnancy, as these doctors are experts in female reproductive health and monitoring the health of a growing baby. Each year, nearly 300 newborns are delivered in McDonough District Hospital’s family-centered maternity unit that combines labor, delivery, and recovery (LDR) rooms.

Our five OB/GYN providers have years of experience delivering babies. We have over 20 nurses on staff who have a combined 300 years of experience and all are trained in neonatal resuscitation, fetal monitoring, and CPR.

As a Level II Obstetrics Department, our highly trained and experienced staff provides 24-hour care before, during, and after your baby is born. From pregnancy through childbirth and beyond, McDonough District Hospital can provide you and your family with the care you need for a healthy beginning. MDH recognizes your choice for a healthcare provider is an important decision. Whether you choose an OB/GYN, or a nurse midwife for prenatal care and delivery, you are assured excellent, personal care. In addition, MDH has a certified pediatric and neonatal nurse practitioner on staff to provide care for newborns through age 18.

The best OB/GYN facility in the region and a highly-skilled, caring group of providers is why MDH is your First Choice for First Class healthcare.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine

The Southern Illinois University (SIU) Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) team, led by Dr. Abrams, has been providing services for MDH high-risk OB patients at their Springfield location, but are now offering telehealth services at MDH in the newly opened Obstetrics and Gynecology clinic. Patients that do not need to be seen in-person by a MFM Specialist at SIU can be seen here at MDH. SIU MFM telehealth appointments are by physician referral and are offered twice a month. According to Dr. Nicholas Viyuoh, OBGYN, “This will provide patients the convenience of maternal-fetal medicine services closer to home. We are excited for this opportunity to better serve our patients."
