Bluffton Hospital discontinues labor, delivery services

BLUFFTON — Bluffton Hospital’s labor and delivery services, which temporarily closed in December 2020 at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, will not reopen as Blanchard Valley Health System has opted to consolidate its labor and delivery services at the main campus in Findlay.

The hospital cited falling birth rates and the increased risk factors for new mothers, many of whom are having children later in life than in decades past.

The Bluffton OB-GYN office will remain open, as will prenatal classes offered at Bluffton Hospital.
