24/7 Availability from Your Doctors

VOb doctors are available 24 hours a day for medical emergencies. Throughout your pregnancy, we are always happy to answer questions about your health and the health of your baby.


At Village Obstetrics we track some of the quality measures advised by the National Quality Forum, The Joint Commission, Healthy People 2010/2020 and ACOG as well as some of our own.

Tracking data supports transparency and self-reflection. Numbers are only a tool and are never a rigid goal. Numbers help us think about the care we give and help us continuously learn and improve.
