History of the Practice
OB-GYN & Midwifery Associates of Ithaca started out as the Ithaca Clinic for Women just after WWII . Dr. Edward Hall was the founding member but was soon joined by Dr. Henry Humphrey and Dr. Bud Tisdale. The practice hired Carol Hayes as its first nurse practitioner in 1973. It started its midwifery practice in the mid 1980’s with Jane Golay, CNM and soon to be followed by Connie Werner, CNM.
Since then, the practice has continued to build its midwifery presence in the community. For over 80 years, the practice has striven to provide for the obstetric and gynecologic needs of Ithaca’s women.
