HCA Houston Healthcare's Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency is a newly ACGME accredited four-year program accepting 5 residents per year.
As a brand new obstetrics and gynecology residency, we can offer an exceptional training experience combined with the opportunity to become a leader. Our highest goal is to train OBGYNs to be fully prepared and completely confident as they begin a career in the service of women and their families.
The obstetrics and gynecology program is offered at HCA Houston Healthcare West, a well-respected community hospital in the rapidly growing “Energy Corridor” of Houston. This hospital sees approximately 2,500 deliveries a year, and over 600 major gynecologic procedures annually. Additionally, it has a 28 bed ICU and an ER that sees approximately 56,000 visits annually. Starting PGY-2, residents will also rotate at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, which contains the largest maternity care center in Texas, performing approximately 11,000 deliveries annually with every sub specialty of OBGYN well represented.
Residents will also spend time training at HOPE Clinic, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with a focus on culturally competent care, serving one of the most diverse immigrant and local populations anywhere in the nation.
It is our daily commitment to create a culture of trust, inclusion, and wellness. No matter the extensive resources of a program or its academic pedigree, we believe that nothing in any healthcare organization is more valuable than the people involved. Therefore, it only makes sense to invest in our well-being as individuals and as a group. We make time to do the things that bring us joy, including serving our patients and furthering our education.
