Four weeks ago Dedicated to Women OB-GYN, a private practice dedicated to offering gynecologic and obstetric services in Delaware, expanded their business to Milford, opening a new location on Lakeview Avenue. A group of thirteen providers including Obstetricians, Gynecologists, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners and Certified Nurse-Midwives, the facility offers health care services for women of all ages.
Milford resident Stacey Kemp, Registered Nurse and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners, joined the group in December assisting the care provider in their expansion to Milford. A nurse for over twenty years, Stacey graduated from Beebe School of Nursing and worked as a Labor and Delivery Nurse at Beebe Hospital for five years. Over the next two decades she worked for a private practice and Bayhealth Medical Center.
“When I went to nursing school I wanted to be a Midwife and deliver babies,” commented Kemp. “As I worked in the labor and delivery setting I became aware that there was much more offered in women’s health services and I became interested in women’s health at all stages of life.”
Kemp states that there is a real need for growth in women’s health services in Delaware, especially in Kent and Sussex Counties. Dedicated to Women offers a myriad of obstetrics and gynecology services including adolescent gynecology, routine and high-risk pregnancy, infertility assessment, minimally invasive surgery, menopausal care and sexual dysfunction care. Structuring the practice to meet the needs of women on a preventative level, Dedicated to Women offers well-woman care which encompasses annual physical exams such as pap smears, mammogram scheduling, and breast exams, osteoporosis prevention, smoking cessation counseling, weight management, health and well being.
Just as important as the services they offer, Kemp believes that the personal relationships that Dedicated to Women providers develop with their patients, has led to their success. Now helping young women that she once provided care for during their own birth, Kemp states that this level of comfort and personal connection is something that is critical to women’s health services.
“As a female I want to have that personal relationship with my care providers,” commented Kemp. “When you have someone by your side for nine months of prenatal care, you do not want to see a stranger when it is time for delivery.”
The expansion of the new facility in Milford is a statement to the practice’s desire to provide women with the highest quality obstetrical and gynecologic care in pleasant surroundings with courtesy and understanding. “We want to see the impact of women’s health service grow while keeping those services here in Milford,” commented Kemp. “At Dedicated to Women we want to be as accommodating to our community as possible.”
