DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., May 2, 2014 – On May 1, community members joined Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center for the opening of Women’s Care OB/GYN, which also honored local OB/GYN Dr. Irwin Landau on his retirement.
After 25 years of serving the community, Landau has retired and left his practice to Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Women’s Care OB/GYN will live on in its new location on the fourth floor of the hospital – down the hall from the state-of-the-art BirthCare Center.
At the event, attendees congratulated Landau on his retirement and reconnected with his staff who are now working with the group of physicians who have pledged to carry on his legacy: Dr. Larrain, Dr. Tapia-Santiago, Dr. Desai and Dr. Robertson.
Guests enjoyed delectable desserts and sparkling cider and toured the new office to learn about equipment, including 4D ultrasound available onsite.
“It has been an honor to work with Dr. Landau during his 25-year career in our community,” said Kim Rogers, Florida Hospital HealthCare Partners vice president. “We are proud to now carry on his legacy of top-notch care to mothers and babies at Women’s Care OB/GYN.”
The celebration coincided with the local rollout of Florida’s Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) program, which represents a change in how individuals receive most health care services from Florida Medicaid. The event at Women’s Care OB/GYN served as an opportunity for patients with changing health care coverage to learn more about the office and services, as well as ask staff questions.
