|SPRINGFIELD — Baystate Medical Center has entered into an innovative new collaboration with Noble Hospital designed to enhance women’s health services in the region.
As part of the collaboration, area women will now benefit from receiving outpatient primary care close to home in Westfield at Noble’s Women’s Center OB/GYN practice, and then deliver their babies at the birthing center at Wesson Women and Infants’ Unit at Baystate Medical Center.
The new relationship with Noble and its Women’s Health Program involves Westfield obstetricians and gynecologists Dr. Robert Wool and Dr. James Wang, who serve as co-medical directors of the program, as well as nurse practitioner Roberta Barron NP. In addition to this hospital relationship, Drs. Wool and Wang maintain a private practice of obstetrics and gynecology, Women’s Health Associates of Western Mass.
The collaboration will also provide access for Westfield area women to a variety of Baystate’s subspecialties and reproductive medicine experts, including in-vitro fertilization — all with access to state-of-the-art technology.
“The Women’s Center at Noble Hospital is committed to providing comprehensive quality services to women of the Greater Westfield area,” said Noble President George Koller. “We are delighted to engage in this relationship with Baystate as it reinforces our commitment to area women, and provides the outstanding resources of Baystate Medical Center to our community.”
