Obstetrics & Gynecology

Women’s healthcare needs are unique and require specialized attention. At Beloit Health System, we offer full obstetrics and gynecological services. Beloit Health System’s OB/GYN physicians see patients at the Beloit Clinic in Beloit, Wisconsin, and at NorthPointe in Roscoe, Illinois. Our highly specialized team provides gynecological care for women of all ages – from obstetrics to peri and post-menopausal care.

Should I See an OB/GYN?

Women should protect their health through preventative means, which can be done through a yearly health checkup. During an OB/GYN appointment, you may undergo tests such as collecting lab specimens to check for certain diseases. Your OB/GYN will choose which tests you need depending on your age, overall health, and sexual history. You should book an appointment to see your OB/GYN for pregnancy, menopause, or any reproductive or sexual health needs.

OB/GYNS commonly treat female health concerns such as:

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Endometriosis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Infertility
  • Bacterial and viral sexually transmitted infections (STIs, also called STDs)
  • And more

Obstetrics & Family Care at Beloit Health System

The Family Care Center offers many services including Labor and Delivery, a level-II nursery, mother/baby care in our postpartum area, and pediatrics. The Center is staffed with professional Obstetric and Pediatric nurses who combine technology with the professional care that is so important for women and children.

The Family Care Center at Beloit Health System delivers approximately 600 newborns a year, most of them routine and predictable. However, situations can arise where mom or newborn have a health concern, and this is where additional expertise is especially needed. Tests such as the Pulse Oximetry, which was recently recommended as a mandatory test by the Wisconsin Legislation, are performed in the Family Care Center.
