New OB/GYN services coming to Franciscan St. Francis Health-Mooresville

MOORESVILLE, Ind. – Franciscan St. Francis Health – Mooresville has a new addition to its Cherished Beginnings Women and Children’s Services. Southside OBGYN, a highly recognized physician group practicing in the Indianapolis area since 1969, now offers its quality obstetrics and gynecological services in Mooresville.
“I’m honored to welcome Southside OBGYN, a group of physicians committed to Franciscan St. Francis Health and its principles of caring for mind, body and spirit in serving the Mooresville community,” said Jared Stark, executive director at Franciscan St. Francis – Mooresville. “This addition to our medical family significantly expands and enhances the OBGYN services available at our campus.”
Southside OBGYN’s board-certified physicians provide care in obstetrics, endocrinology, infertility, gynecology and surgical gynecology.
St. Francis had been actively searching for a new group of OB/GYN physicians to provide high quality care to area residents since Southwest Women’s Health announced its decision to cease offering obstetrics services at the Mooresville campus in May, 2012.
“St. Francis remains committed to providing the highest quality maternity services in Mooresville and Southside OBGYN supports that mission.” Stark said. “Our Cherished Beginnings nurses and health professionals proudly surpass national standards of measurement for clinical excellence in women’s health care and we look forward to working with Southside OBGYN physicians and staff to make our program even stronger.”
Women & Children's Services at Franciscan St. Francis Health – Mooresville includes Cherished Beginnings, which features 13 private labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care rooms, two Caesarean surgical suites and a Level II neonatal nursery with immediate access to the south side’s only Level III neonatal intensive care unit at the St. Francis – Indianapolis campus. About 500 infants are delivered annually at the Mooresville campus.
Southside OBGYN’s Glenn Dobbs, D.O., who has been in practice since 1996, will be the primary physician delivering at the Mooresville campus. He specializes in high risk obstetrics, diabetes care, and minimally invasive surgery. Dobbs earned his doctor of medicine from Western University of Health Sciences in California; completed a one-year rotating internship in Montclair, California and an obstetrics and gynecology residency at the University of California-San Francisco in Fresno.
