Richmond, VA — HCA Virginia is filling a women's health gap in New Kent County by bringing the first OB/GYN to the area. Dr. Maria Espiridion is an obstetrician and gynecologist affiliated with Henrico Doctors' Hospital, and she will begin treating patients on Sept. 27 at OB/GYN Associates within Chickahominy Family Physicians' Quinton location.
“Patients in this area typically have to travel to Richmond or Williamsburg for care, so we are excited to fill a huge void in New Kent County,” said Ryan Jensen, chief executive officer of Henrico Doctors' Hospitals. “People who live in surrounding communities will be able to save a trip by having comprehensive OB/GYN care close by.”
Recent population growth in New Kent makes it the second-fastest growing county in the Commonwealth. This new specialty will provide residents a full spectrum of preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services for female reproductive health, including annual well-woman exams, breast examinations, and colposcopies. Additionally, Espiridion is experienced in treating a wide range of conditions, such as endometriosis, infertility, and menopause.
“I am excited to provide a much-needed service to an area that has needed it for a very long time,” Espiridion said. “I hope women in this community are able to come out and get the care they need without having to drive such long distances to a healthcare provider for basic women's health needs.”
Espiridion will see patients on Tuesdays at OB/GYN Associates in Quinton located inside Chickahominy Family Physicians at 1850 Pocahontas Trail.
