November 23, 2022 | View PDF
Watford City - Dr. Yolanda Newton, OBGYN, has joined our team and will spearhead women's health and obstetric services. MCHS has not had an obstetrics department in over 25 years, so it is with great excitement that this service line is deployed! Dr. Newton is no stranger to North Dakota having served with Great Plains Women's Health Center in Williston from 2013 to 2017. Returning to North Dakota from North Carolina, Dr. Newton served as both an OBGYN Nocturnist and Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Regarding her move to Watford City, Dr. Newton said, "I am both glad to be back in North Dakota and excited to lead the Obstetrics Department! I'm passionate about women's health and look forward to what I can offer here." Among Dr. Newton's strengths are minimally invasive gynecologic surgery through advanced laparoscopy and the natural birthing process. Dr. Newton is a board certified OBGYN who "channels her inner midwife".
Pete Edis, CEO, states, "Nationwide, there is a short supply of OBGYNs. We are so fortunate to have landed a provider of Dr. Newton's caliber that will not only be joining our medical staff but will also be a member of our community. She is upbeat and excited and will fill a critical role in our growing community." Labor & delivery services will begin on Tuesday, Dec. 6. The obstetrics wing offers a beautiful and calming environment where one to one nursing care is provided to mothers in labor, a unique caveat for a critical access hospital. Care will be provided by board certified obstetricians and pediatricians. Michelle Bomer, Interim OB Director, said, "The birthing experience...it's YOUR experience. We want it to mirror expectations for each mother, providing a comfortable and positive journey surrounded by caring and seasoned professionals."
Spacious, private rooms adorn the wing with a dedicated nursing station. MCHS offers a jacuzzi tub for those seeking relaxation during labor. Additionally, epidurals will be available. For mothers who prefer to be more mobile, we offer remote monitoring. The baby's well-being can be monitored while mom is up and moving.
Appointments for women's health services with Dr. Newton can be made by calling 701-842-3771. A grand opening to celebrate the opening of labor & delivery services will be held on Thursday, Dec. 1 from 1-4 p.m. Please join us for tours and refreshments! Labor & delivery services will officially open on Tuesday, Dec. 6.
