HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Richmond OB-GYN, an obstetrics and gynecology provider of Bon Secours Richmond Health System, has opened a new office at Bon Secours Heart and Vascular Institute building in Henrico. The building works as an extension of St. Mary’s Hospital and is located in Reynolds Crossing.

The new building also boasts a new midwifery program. Alice Hirata, M.D., will help to establish the midwifery practice at St. Mary’s Hospital. She will focus on low-risk pregnancy, low-intervention birth and midwifery care.

Sarah Peterson, M.D., also joins the physician team at the new Henrico office. Peterson has a particular interest in pediatric and adolescent gynecology.

She is an advocate for low-intervention childbirth and is supportive of patients who wish to have a vaginal birth after having a cesarean section. Peterson is trained in minimally invasive surgical techniques, including both laparoscopic and robotic surgery.

Richmond OB-GYN will continue to operate its location at St. Francis Medical Center.
