KCH is pleased to announce the OB/GYN services of Marc Landsberg, M.D., FACOG, OB/GYN and Julie Szymanski, CNM, MSN at Kane Community Hospital. 

This agreement of service delivery with Elk Regional Health Center (ERHC) will provide maternity and women’s care services for KCH patients.

ERHC will offer a full range of obstetric and gynecology services including the care of women during pregnancy, deliveries at Elk Regional Health Center, post-delivery, and the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system.

Dr. Landsberg is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology specializing in high-risk pregnancy, infertility, abnormal pap smears and contraceptive management.

Ms. Szymanski is a certified nurse midwife (CNM), providing well woman and birthing services along with an OB/GYN and family physicians. 

A midwife is a trained professional who offers expert care, education, counseling and support to a woman and her newborn during the childbearing cycle.  The midwife works with each woman and her family to identify their unique physical, social and emotional needs.

In addition, many midwives provide well-woman gynecological care and family planning services. Midwives know how to watch for and identify potential or a actual complications, and they can provide emergency treatment until additional assistance is available.

Kane patients will be seen at Kane Physician’s Annex (behind Kane Community Hospital).  For the convenience and comfort of KCH patients — testing and procedures are performed at KCH.

For OB/GYN or Midwifery services call for an appointment at 814-837-4744.
