If you think you are or may become pregnant, be sure you’re giving your baby the best possible start in life.
Obstetrics deals with the care of a woman and her baby during pregnancy, childbirth and the period shortly after birth. Most obstetricians also are gynecologists. Gynecologists are concerned with the health of the female reproductive system.
At Good Samaritan, we offer comprehensive care for women who are starting or growing a family. Because a mother’s health is critical to the health of her baby and family, your doctor and our highly trained nursing staff will combine the latest technology and treatments with sensitivity and respect. We understand this is a special time. After all, we have families, too.
Tips For Expectant Moms

Women’s bodies are complex. Good Samaritan offers the highest quality of women’s health care in a comfortable setting that provides excellent care and exceptional service.
If you are over the age of 18, an annual exam is recommended. The exam allows a health-care provider to assess normal development of reproductive organs and screen for certain health problems. It also provides an opportunity to test heart, lung and breast health, and it offers you a chance to talk with a clinician about any health concerns.
Gynecologic services cover the spectrum from routine care to minimally invasive surgeries to gynecologic oncology services. Our physicians provide expertise in all aspects of gynecologic care.
We offer the following procedures at our Same Day Surgery Center. All of these are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning no hospital admittance is required.
- Tubal ligation
- D & C
