OB/GYN Changes In Response To The COVID-19 Pandemic:

In accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the nation’s leading public health institute, Madigan is taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of exposure for our patients and staff to the COVID-19 virus. In addition to preventive measures taken throughout the hospital, Madigan’s OB/GYN clinic has reduced in-person appointments and as an alternative will utilize telephone appointments for many of our patients.

Labs: We are also now doing all pregnancy related labs in our clinic. Our patients can view lab results in the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal. Patients should report the clinic front desk to check in for lab work rather than going to Madigan’s main lab. Please note, glucose labs specifically, can be conducted no later than 2:00p.m.

Madigan’s OB nurses and providers are now processing all intakes via Telephone. Our goal is to provide our patients the courtesy to have access to the information below available for download at any time.
