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.  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 October 2016, SOGH has an active membership of almost 600 individuals.
