Providence Park Hospital, Novi Michigan

Providence Park Hospital

Overview

Providence Park Hospital is a 200 bed community hospital that was opened in 2008. Since opening, the hospital has showed consistent growth in volume and is getting busier by the day. It is a beautiful facility located in suburban Novi.

Obstetrics

Providence Park Hospital is home to a 12 bed LDR unit that is similiar to the structure in Southfield. There is a special care nursery, but the premature babies are delivered at the main campus in Southfield. As a result, the patient population is predominantly a low-risk obstetrics population. It is a nice experience for residents to have the opportunity to help take care of patients undergoing natural childbirth.

Gynecology

The gynecology service at Providence Park is varied and busy. There is a wide range of gynecologic procedures being done at Providence Park including a number of the Urogynecologic procedures, a large number of minor gynecologic cases like endometrial ablation and hysteroscopy and some oncology cases. A large number of benign hysterectomies are also being done here. We have also added a Davinci to this campus!

Providence Center for OB/Gyn

Providence Center for OB/Gyn is the continuity clinic where the resident practices are housed. It is on the Southfield campus and runs all week long (except during protected time for didactics). The residents learn the art of outpatient medicine in the comfort of their own office!
