The Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) clinic is a specialty service focused on providing high quality healthcare to pregnant women and women with gynecological related issues. The OB/GYN clinic is a referral clinic which means that for non-OB related issues, patients must first see their primary care provider, who will then refer them, if needed, to the OB/GYN clinic. After you have received a routine referral from your PCM, please allow 3 business days before calling the OB/GYN appointment line. If you have received an ASAP referral, you may call the OB/GYN appointment line the following business day.
Location: Weed Army Community Hospital, Main Hospital, Building 166
