Blacksburg, VA — Officials with LewisGale Physicians held a ribbon cutting ceremony today to announce the expanded delivery of women’s care services in the New River Valley, welcome new providers, and unveil its renamed obstetrics and gynecology (Ob/Gyn) clinic.
During the event, Mary Price, director of physician services, welcomed Steven Berliner, MD, board-certified and fellowship-trained physician with LewisGale Physicians serving Ob/Gyn patients in Blacksburg.
“Whether you are in adolescence or menopause, seeking preventive care or treatment, your individual needs come first,” said Dr. Berliner. “Our commitment is to support our patients through every stage of life.”
LewisGale Physicians is also adding midwifery services for women who desire less medical intervention during low-risk pregnancy, labor, and birth using a nurse-midwife supported by Ob/Gyn physicians.
“We understand that every expectant mother's preferences are different when it comes to maternity care and childbirth,” said Tina King, certified nurse-midwife serving females in the New River Valley. “We are excited to now offer midwifery care for women interested in natural or alternative delivery options to meet the growing healthcare needs of the community.”
At the conclusion of the event, LewisGale Physicians also announced the renaming of its OB/GYN clinic from Virginia Women’s Health to Women's Health Specialists and unveiled new signs to reflect the change.
“Our team of skilled gynecologists, obstetricians, surgeons, and oncologists is committed to delivering advanced preventive, diagnostic and treatment options with expertise and compassion to women in Virginia's New River Valley,” said Price.
