Renee Eger, MD, has joined Bayside Ob/Gyn, a private practice affiliated with Women & Infants Health Care Alliance. She is now seeing patients at 235 Plain Street in Providence and 60 Messenger Street in Plainville, MA.
Dr. Eger is one of five gynecologists in Rhode Island who recently achieved certification by the Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) of the Surgical Review Corporation, an affiliate of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL). She is performing all surgeries at Women & Infants Hospital, a COEMIG committed to offering women the most effective diagnostic and therapeutic techniques in minimally invasive surgery.
“In addition to providing general ob/gyn services, I continue to perform both major and minor gynecologic surgery in the most minimally invasive fashion,” said Dr. Eger. “It has been and continues to be an honor to take care of the health needs of women in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.”
Women & Infants Health Care Alliance, LLC, is a partnership with Women & Infants Hospital and private practice obstetrician-gynecologists, midwives, nurse practitioners and other caregivers designed to foster continuous quality improvement in the women’s health services available in the community and to improve hospital and physician alignment in the age of health care reform.
The organization allows the participating providers to enter into a hospital-affiliated partnership while still retaining the autonomy of their private practices, including maintaining their own office sites and staff. Providers derive the benefit of professional practice administration and improved financial stability, allowing greater focus on patient care.
Dr. Eger is accepting new patients. Call (401) 421-1710.
