Orange Park, FL – Orange Park Medical Center has announced the opening of Orange Park Women’s Health, an obstetrics and gynecology practice serving patients in Clay County. The practice will include four physicians and is located on the Orange Park Medical Center campus at 1893 Kingsley Avenue, suite C.
The practice’s Medical Director and Gynecologist Dr. Nikki Rowan is a longstanding OBGYN in Clay County, delivering babies for over 13 years and nearly 2,500 babies at Orange Park Medical Center. “I’m really excited about the opportunity to join Orange Park Women’s Health,” said Dr. Rowan. “Orange Park Medical Center’s women’s services has grown tremendously over the years and I truly enjoy working with the top-notch staff and committed physicians.”
Dr. Rowan holds a Bachelor of Science and Medical Degree from Brown University in Providence, RI. She completed her residency training in Jacksonville at UF Health, and began practicing in Clay County directly following her residency.
“The thing I find the most rewarding about being an OBGYN is the continuity of care that’s possible. I love caring for my patients through all phases of their life,” said Dr. Rowan. “Now patients I started seeing in their teens are ready to start families, and patients the I delivered their children years ago are moving towards menopause and empty nests.”
Now, I’m starting to see patients that I began seeing in their adolescents, coming to visit me for family planning. I love being a part of that.”
Orange Park Medical Center delivers nearly 2,000 babies each year and is recognized year-over-year by Healthgrades as superior performers in labor and delivery as well as obstetrics and gynecology. The hospital ranks among the top 5% of hospitals in the nation for quality, are designated as five-star recipients for vaginal and c-section deliveries and have earned the Healthgrades Excellence Award six years in a row.
