Sentara Halifax ObGyn Practice Opens
Two physicians serve women's health needs
SOUTH BOSTON, VA - Having access to high-quality, convenient obstetric and gynecological care is important for every woman. as of April April 3, 2017, Sentara Obstetrics & Gynecology presents the women of Halifax County and the surrounding area with a new, comprehensive, high-quality women’s healthcare option, right here in their home town.
“We have chosen to support and invest in women’s health services,” says Chris Lumsden, President and Administrator of Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital. “We hope that the new practice and the revitalization of these services will demonstrate our commitment to quality women’s healthcare. Our two new OB/GYN providers will be offering these integral services right here on the Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital campus at Sentara Obstetrics & Gynecology.”
The new Sentara Obstetrics & Gynecology practice is located in Medical Office Building #1, on the hospital campus. With two OB/GYN providers coming onboard, C. William Rosche, M.D. and Carlos Pottinger, M.D., there will be more access and more options for women.
“We’ve brought two providers on board to launch this practice,” says Grey Watson, Executive Director for Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital. “Women can make appointments with Dr. Rosche now, and we are also accepting appointments for Dr. Pottinger’s arrival on June 1. Both providers are board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology.”
Dr. Rosche has decided to join Sentara Obstetrics & Gynecology as a continuation of the women’s health services he has provided to the community for many years.
“I have served our community since 1996 as an independent OB/GYN provider, and I feel that joining Sentara and my new partner, Dr. Pottinger, is a natural transition for me,” says Dr. Rosche. “As I gain a new partner in practice and become a part of Sentara Obstetrics & Gynecology, I know the care our team provides to the women of our community will be phenomenal.”
Dr. Pottinger agrees with this sentiment and is excited to begin practicing in the community.
“I have practiced for years in a small town much like South Boston and I enjoy the sense of community that comes with being a provider in a rural area,” says Dr. Pottinger. “I am excited to get started and begin practicing with Dr. Rosche at Sentara Obstetrics & Gynecology. He is a talented OB/GYN provider and I am glad to be working alongside him to provide women’s healthcare to the area. I know we will make a great team.”
Together, Dr. Pottinger and Dr. Rosche will provide a full spectrum of care, including gynecological surgery, complete prenatal and obstetric care, and annual gynecological cancer screenings.
“We are so pleased to have Dr. Pottinger joining Sentara and Dr. Rosche joining the new practice to continue providing women’s healthcare in our community, “ says Carla Sanford, RN, BSN, Manager of Labor and Delivery at Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital. “Coupling their expertise with that of our existing OB/GYN medical staff members, we will have the means to enhance what we have to offer expectant mothers in our community.”
