Ocean Gynecological and Obstetrical Associates Joins Barnabas Health Medical Group and Announces Affiliation with Community Medical Center


Ocean Gynecological and Obstetrical Associates (OGOA) announced it has joined Barnabas Health Medical Group (BHMG) and will now be affiliated with Community Medical Center in Toms River.

For more than 50 years, OGOA has provided comprehensive obstetric and gynecologic care to women in Ocean County, delivering more than 30,000 babies. OGOA’s collaborative approach to care combines the expertise and compassion of board-certified physicians and certified nurse midwives. Expectant mothers can choose from three options for maternity care: a physician-only option; a midwife-only option, with physician backup if necessary; or a collaborative model featuring care by both a midwife and physician.

OGOA provides a full range of gynecologic services for women of all ages, including annual exams, family planning and guidance through menopause, as well as minor in-office procedures such as cryotherapy, endometrial biopsy and colposcopy.

As a member of BHMG and as part of the Barnabas Health network, Ocean Gynecological and Obstetrical Associates will continue to build upon its history of delivering high quality care to expectant mothers and their newborn babies.

OGOA is on staff at Community Medical Center in Toms River, where patients have access to state-of-the-art care and comfort available in the hospital’s First Moments Maternity Unit. The hospital offers access to neonatologists who are on site around-the-clock, 24-hour anesthesiology and midwife coverage, private labor-delivery-recovery rooms for low-risk deliveries and a fully equipped operating suite for cesarean births or complicated, high-risk deliveries. In addition, the maternity services offer private rooms with showers for mothers and babies to recover and welcome visitors. A newborn nursery and dedicated Level 2 special care unit are available for infants requiring special attention.
