NORMAN—An Obstetrical Emergency Department has opened at Norman Regional’s HealthPlex to provide patients with excellent, quality care, Norman Regional Health System has elevated the standard of care in the Labor and Delivery area formerly known as labor triage. This area will now be an Obstetrical Emergency Department or OBED.

During the course of a pregnancy, a woman may be referred to or seek care at the OBED for evaluation and/or treatment of potential urgent medical conditions. This elevated level of care allows for a patient and her unborn child to be evaluated by a physician who is a board-certified, OB hospitalist 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The OB hospitalist will work closely with a patient’s primary physician and the nursing staff to assess her condition, discuss her care options and provide appropriate treatment.

Starting Wednesday, July 18, 2018, we ask that all unscheduled labor and delivery patients please use the Emergency Entrance located at the east side of Norman Regional HealthPlex.

Please note that insurance carriers will process any visits to the OBED as an emergency room visit, subject to any co-pays, co-insurance or other applicable fees under a patient’s policy.

If you have questions, please call 405-515-3500 at any hour of day or night, every day of the week.
