Dr. Jonathan Davies has joined the Maternity Health Unit at Western Sierra Medical Clinic in Grass Valley.

Davies — who specializes in high-risk obstetrics, gynecology, advanced and non-invasive surgery, and infertility — has been an OB/GYN since 2001.

“It’s extremely important for women, especially for mothers and their still-developing babies, to have access to OB/GYNs,” said Davies. “The region, like many others in the state, has been dealing with a shortage of OB/GYNs for years.”

Davies will be available several days a week each month at the Grass Valley health center. He will offer a wide range of women’s services, from helping patients choose the most appropriate birth control to prenatal visits with mothers-to-be.

“I’ve always enjoyed Nevada County, and my schedule allows me the flexibility to provide a much-needed service to the region,” said Davies, a University of Kansas School of Medicine graduate. He completed his obstetrics and gynecology residency training at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles and Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield.

“Dr. Davies brings tremendous experience and skills to the community,” said Dr. Heather Lucas-Ross, Chief Medical Officer of Western Sierra. “He will be a great asset to our staff and we are pleased to be working with him.”

Western Sierra CEO Scott McFarland agreed.

“We’re always looking at how to improve health care services and more effectively meet the needs of our patients and the region,” he said. “The Maternity Health Unit is critical and at the top of our must-provide service list for patients.”
