Congratulations to Dr. Roberta Shear, newly appointed JGH Chief of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Looking to the future, Dr. Shear says she would like to see services in her area expanded to include virtual care. This would enable patients who meet specific criteria to return home, where care and digital monitoring would continue remotely. At the same time, Dr. Shear says she believes strongly in building on her department’s many current strengths—notably, outstanding care for women with complex, high-risk pregnancies or with gynecologic cancers.
