If you need to see a specialist, referral is simple and seamless, thanks to our membership in the UK HealthCare network. As part of an academic health system, UK Morehead Women’s Healthcare hosts medical students through the UK College of Medicine Rural Physician Leadership Program, which is based in Morehead. Having doctors-in-training join our OB-GYNs as part of your team brings fresh perspectives to your care.
Our clinic has a strong relationship with St. Claire Regional Medical Center, which is where our OB-GYNs deliver babies and perform procedures. If you or your baby need high-level care, we can arrange a swift transfer to Kentucky Children’s Hospital, which is home to neonatology services and a 90-bed neonatal intensive care unit.
UK Morehead Women’s Healthcare is one of several UK HealthCare clinics participating in the PATH Home Trial. Part of the UK HealthCare Perinatal Assessment and Treatment Home (PATHways) Program, the PATH Home Trial is a study that allows women who are pregnant and have opioid use disorder to receive prenatal care and opioid maintenance therapy at one location. Services also include group therapy with a peer support specialist and certified addiction counselor. Patients do not have to participate in the research component of the trial to receive care.
Our clinic offers telemedicine appointments for certain patients through UK TeleCare, including low-risk obstetric patients who don’t need a physical exam. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, our team may want to comanage your care with a UK HealthCare maternal-fetal medicine specialist. We schedule in-office telemedicine consultations with these specialists for our patients. During your appointment, a sonographer will perform an ultrasound, and you and a maternal-fetal medicine specialist will discuss the results via a video feed.
