quatroEARLINGTON, Ky. (11/13/17) — Longtime OBGYN Raymond Quatro, MD, has provided healthcare for women in Hopkins County since 1983. Health First Community Health Center annouced he will be providing women's health services at the Earlington facility.

He recently joined the medical staff at Health First, a nonprofit, federally qualified community health center. With the addition of Quatro, Health First is strengthening its women’s health service line. The health center offers women’s preventative care, prenatal care, pregnancy and preconception weight management in addition to behavioral health. 

Over the years, Quatro has helped to bring thousands of babies into the world, according to a Health First press release. In his new role, he will no longer offer traditional obstetrics services, and will focus on gynecological services and weight management.

“There are many great doctors in our community who deliver babies,” said Dr. Quatro. “I am excited to focus my practice on helping women get healthy before and during pregnancy. Traditionally, metabolic issues have not been addressed very well in an OBGYN office setting. Research shows that obese women who can decrease their body mass index will increase the likelihood of pregnancy and reduce complications in utero and postpartum.”

Quatro is certified in obesity medicine and clinical lipidology. He works with patients to develop individualized plans for weight loss. He hopes to work with family practice providers to educate them on the importance of caring for metabolic issues. 

In addition to weight management, Quatro will continue offering gynecological care to women of all ages. Health First recently purchased an Endosee for office hysteroscopy. This progressive medical devise offers a new and better standard of care than the blind biopsy for diagnosing issues such as abnormal uterine bleeding and endometrial polyps. This in-office procedure allows the physician to quickly complete a diagnostic hysteroscopy without requiring anesthesia or a trip to the operating room.

“At Health First, women will find a warm and welcoming environment where women can access affordable healthcare and outreach services,” said Health First CEO LeAnn Langston. “The expanded services Dr. Quatro brings will help us further our mission to offer hope and assistance for all we serve, with care that is evidence-based and patient-focused.”

Quatro is located at Health First Earlington and is currently accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, call 270-905-4084.
