Given the increase in births at Culpeper Medical Center over the past two years, our community expressed a need for increased access to women’s services, and Novant Health UVA Health System listened. Earlier this month Culpeper Medical Center, a Novant Health UVA Health System facility, announced the planned expansion of its Women’s Center with a new 9,000-square-foot clinic located on the medical center campus.


The Women’s Center is expected to be completed by spring 2019 and will better serve women and families in the Culpeper community through added capacity, additional services and a more convenient overall experience for patients.


“Through our affiliation with University of Virginia Health System, we are able to bring women in our community access to high-quality care and world-class OB/GYN providers,” said Jeff Hetmanski, president and COO of Culpeper Medical Center. “With our new women’s clinic, we will now have expanded space for providers to better meet the growing need for women’s services in our community.”


Expanded Space and Patient Accommodation


The Culpeper Medical Center Board approved $2.4 million for the development of the Women’s Center to be located in the Physician’s Office Building at 633 Sunset Lane. The new facility will include 11 spacious exam rooms, a minor procedure room, an ultrasound room, four consult rooms, a full-service lab, consultation rooms and six offices for providers and staff.


The new space doubles the number of patients Culpeper OB/GYN providers are able to serve and offers more convenient parking for patients along with better proximity to the birth center and hospital.


Expert Providers Treating Every Generation


Existing providers include Constance Corbin, NP, Alta DeRoo, MD, Andrea Jackson, MD and Kevin Stocker, MD. In addition, a new full-time provider, Iris Amarante, MD has recently joined the practice. Cosmetic upgrades for the Culpeper Family Birth Center are also in progress and will continue in 2019. As always, free tours of the birthing center are offered and afford expectant parents the opportunity to meet the staff and view the labor and post-partum rooms.


“Providing patients with a remarkable experience begins with meeting all OB/GYN needs close to home, and in the convenience of one location,” said Dr. Ferguson, professor and chair of obstetrics and gynecology at UVA Health System. “UVA Obstetrics & Gynecology, a department of Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center, is proud to continue serving Culpeper women with exceptional care for low- and high-risk pregnancies as well as GYN/women’s health care for every stage of life.”


The clinic will offer obstetrical as well as gynecological services to women of all ages in the community. From pre-adolescent consultation to menopause management, UVA Obstetrics & Gynecology providers will offer care across generations. Additionally, sub-specialists from UVA OB/GYN will regularly provide consultations in collaboration with onsite providers.


The office will operate Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. A satellite location at the 4376 Germanna Highway, Locust Grove Office also provides women’s services from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, where patients can be seen by Andrea Jackson, MD.
