CLARION – In the summer of 2021, Butler Health System (BHS) Clarion Hospital will close its inpatient obstetrical unit and open a new Women’s Care Center at BHS Clarion Trinity Point.
Effective July 1, women under the care of Clarion physicians will be directed to Butler Memorial Hospital for newborn deliveries. BHS Women’s Care Clarion will continue to provide comprehensive women’s health care, including all prenatal, post-partum and gynecologic care.
Later in the summer, BHS Clarion will open a new state-of-the-art medical office building located in Clarion at Trinity Point. Offered at this new location will be enhanced comprehensive women’s services. Located in one location, BHS Women’s Care will offer state-of-the-art 3D mammography, bone density (DEXA) testing, women’s ultrasound, and other amenities and services.
Anie Perard, MD, BHS Clarion Hospital’s Chief of Staff and a practicing OB GYN physician said, “We are looking forward to working with the expanded team of providers within the Obstetrics department at Butler Hospital.”
She went on to say, “Serving the community by providing compassionate care to our patients will still be our focus as we move our OB delivery services from Clarion Hospital to Butler Memorial Hospital.”
Steven Davis, BHS Clarion Hospital’s President, added, “This new partnership offers an expansion of the Clarion team; rest assured women will still receive all pre-natal care in Clarion, the only change will be where they will deliver.”
BHS Butler Memorial Hospital offers 24/7 on-site pediatric hospitalists and nursery support, 24/7 on-site anesthesiology care for labor pain management and emergency deliveries, midwifery care, and the option for women who have had a previous cesarean delivery to have a trial of labor.
