Bridge Magazine: Washtenaw County has highest density of obstetricians in Michigan
Washtenaw County has the highest density of OB/GYN doctors for its resident population in Michigan, according to a recent article by Bridge Magazine.
There are 130 obstetricians that practice in the county, which is more than 62 out of the state’s 83 counties combined.
That means there’s one OB/GYN for every 2,653 residents in Washtenaw County, and one OB/GYN for every 22 pregnant women.
In Michigan’s northeast lower peninsula and eastern upper peninsula, residents only have one or two practicing obstetricians to serve the entire county, a result of medical economics and a rapidly aging population in the northern part of the state.
