In the past five years, the Ob-Gyn subspecialty has become and remains one of the lowest paid in the United States. Ob-Gyns serve more Medicaid patients on a percentage basis than any other specialty and their role as a primary care giver is growing. These are challenging trends that can only be positively managed by becoming more relevant at both the local and national levels.
The UWH leadership believes that achieving these goals and fulfilling our vision is more attainable within a larger Ob-Gyn physician-owned and operated group. We believe that:
By affiliating with UWH you will soon have the strength of 1,000 Ob-Gyn providers taking up your issues, forging substantial economic clout on your behalf, delivering greater operating and IT efficiencies, and fighting for what is most important to you and your patients. For important issues on the local, state, and national levels, the size, strength, and influence of the national organization and the substantial backing of Unified Women’s Healthcare will positively influence the conversation.

All of this is being done to benefit you- the caregiver, and your patients.
