Shenandoah Women’s Healthcare is merging with Augusta Health’s practice. Here’s what it means for the practitioners and expectant mothers.
Shenandoah Women’s Healthcare, a Harrisonburg-based obstetrics and gynecology provider, will become part of the Augusta Medical Group Practice starting Aug. 1. While the practice will keep its footprint in the city, some of the group’s patients who are due after the switch takes effect say they’re concerned they might not know the person helping them in the delivery room unless they drive to Augusta Health in Fishersville.
As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Augusta Health physicians and their patients for the last year have had access to the Minnesota-based clinic’s medical resources right here in the Valley.
Hospitals in the Valley are grappling with the Omicron variant surge, which has nearly filled up Augusta Health’s ICU and COVID units and prompted Sentara RMH on Friday to postpone non-essential surgeries.
