KHC Develops Partnerships to Enhance Obstetrical & Gynecological Care

Knoxville — At Knoxville Hospital & Clinics we take great pride in our ability to serve our community and patients by providing them with the very best care. We are pleased to announce that we will be enhancing and expanding our obstetrical and gynecological services.  This is being accomplished through a new partnership with Obstetrics & Gynecological Associates, from Des Moines, and Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. 

With this partnership beginning July 1, our expectant moms can continue to receive all of their prenatal care at KHC. They can choose to continue seeing their local primary care provider for their early OB care or an OB/GYN specialist who will hold a clinic at KHC twice a month.

“This partnership brings together the best of both worlds. The expectant family can continue to be seen in their own community close to home. When that special time comes for delivery, they will be in the caring hands of staff who deliver almost 5,000 babies per year and have immediate access to a NICU should something unexpected happen. If there are specific requests for a nurse midwife or doula, that can be accommodated as well,” said Kevin Kincaid, Chief Executive Officer at KHC.

Our OB/GYN specialists coming to Knoxville, Dr. Tamara Dassanayake, or Dr. T as she is commonly called, and Dr. Stephen Feltz bring the very best in specialized OB care and gynecologic surgery.  They not only specialize in routine and high risk pregnancy, but also specialize in women’s health focusing on the unique needs of women, from young adulthood through menopause.

Dr. T is certified through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology with over 15 years of experience.  Dr Feltz has close to 20 years of experience, and is also board certified through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. He has a specific specialty in the treatment of women with a wide range of conditions including urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.

“We have a rich history of providing exceptional healthcare services to our communities and I am very proud of the quality healthcare providers and staff we have to deliver this care.  Drs. T and Feltz share this commitment and are dedicated to providing high quality, complete healthcare for women in our service area and beyond,” said Kincaid.
