About Us

Founded in 2011, the Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists (SOGH) is a rapidly growing group of physicians, midwives, nurses, and other individuals in the healthcare field who support the OB/GYN Hospitalist model.  View a diagram outlining the organization's history from the Vision 2020: SOGH Strategic Plan here.  Our primary mission is to assist our members in their practice of OB/GYN Hospitalist medicine through education and information in our newsletters, website, and Annual Clinical Meeting.  

In addition, SOGH offers membership opportunities, various industry specific resources, volunteer engagement, and networking opportunities.  As of February 2017, SOGH has an active membership of almost 600 individuals. View a diagram outlining the organization's membership and meeting statistics from Vision 2020: SOGH Strategic Plan here.
