Blair Johnson Wylie, MD, MPH, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Mass General Hospital’s Vincent Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, now sees patients twice a month at Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Women’s Health. She started seeing patients at the Northampton office last month.
“As a benefit to our patients, the addition of Dr. Wylie to our obstetrical staff is a great example of our growing clinical relationship with Mass General,” Tucker Kueny, MD, medical director of obstetrics and gynecology at Cooley Dickinson Hospital said, noting that Wylie is a credentialed member of Cooley Dickinson’s medical staff.
“We enthusiastically welcome Dr. Wylie to our practice and look forward to the expertise that she brings to our patients. Our collaboration with Dr. Wylie will allow more patients to get more of their care in their own community”
Wylie is available for office consultations for women who meet the criteria for high risk pregnancies. She also performs detailed anatomical survey ultrasounds (level II ultrasounds) at the Women’s Health office. Wylie will also act as a liaison between Mass General’s and Cooley Dickinson’s obstetrical departments as the clinical collaboration grows. As a leader in diagnostic ultrasound, Mass General was among New England’s first hospitals to offer first-trimester screening for Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities.
Patients will be referred to Wylie through their Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Women’s Health obstetrician. Wylie will not attend deliveries at Cooley Dickinson’s Childbirth Center.
