Hospital To Stop Delivering Babies (Obama-Care)

From Fox News:

Southwestern Pennsylvania hospital to stop baby deliveries

January 16, 2013

Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March — blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.

The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

Those doctors and hospitals were undoubtedly overcharging women, anyway.

The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

Southwestern Pennsylvania is where Obama said a lot of ‘bitter clingers’ live. We don’t need any more of them.

In a lengthy statement posted to its website Wednesday, the hospital cited several reasons for the decision — including a claim that the population of women of child-bearing age is dropping and that the number of births the hospital would be called upon to perform isn’t enough for it to provide the service in the face of lower reimbursements under the federal Affordable Care Act…

So this is just the latest example of Obama-Care’s ‘War On Women.’

The hospital delivered about 200 babies each year since restarting its obstetrics program in 2005…

The closest obstetric facility is 10 miles away.

What’s the big deal? Ten miles on country roads is a joy ride when you are in labor. Besides, we would bet there aren’t any celebrities or top political leaders living in the area, anyway.

    There gonna be a lot fewer “white babies” and a whole lot more “Obama babies” by the time this national nightmare is over.

  2. River0 says:

    This is the main agenda of ObummerScare, to drive the independent providers out, and bring in Federally controlled institutions. Healthcare will deteriorate massively in the coming years. Many of the best doctors will form small ’boutique’ facilities for those who can afford them. The rest of us will see the proletarian doctors and nurses, IF we can get in.

    These are the ‘Obamaquences’ of inept and incompetent collectivism.

    Hmmm. Who would have thought that Obama-Care would reduce services at hospitals? Who would have thought that Obama-Care would force doctors to “refocus” their practices so that they can remain a viable business? Who would have thought that people wouldn’t be able to keep their own doctors?

    A-hem. Me. I did.

    who is willing to bet paycheck that more obstetricians will be leaving than abortionists?

  5. USSFreedom says:

    Planned Parenthood offices to increase in area mentioned in order to lessen the need of any connected to delivering babies.
