OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY
NON-PROFIT OHIO CORPORATION
Brown County Women's Health (BCWH) was
incorporated June 11, 2012 in Ohio as a non-profit Limited Liability
BCWH spread its wings as a
result of Women's Services closing at the hospital in Georgetown,
OH. Since both physicians live in Georgetown, and had a
passion to continue caring for local women, they started this
non-profit OB/GYN practice. Drs. Patridge and Varnau together
have over 60+ years of experience in obstetrics and gynecology.
BARBARA J. PATRIDGE, M.D., FACOG
Patridge was born in Milbank, S.D. She attended medical
school at the University of South Dakota. After her OB/GYN
residency in St. Paul Minnesota, she moved to Georgetown, OH
and has practiced there since 1985, delivering third
generation additions to many local families.
Patridge has extensive knowledge and experience with
Goldfish and Koi as one of her main hobbies. She has
also made many medical missionary trips to South America to
care for underprivileged rural patients.
Dr. Patridge will be serving as Deputy Coroner of Brown
County, Ohio, starting January 7, 2013.
VARNAU, D.O., FACOG
Doctor Varnau was born in
Port Clinton, OH. She became an RN after high school
and entered the U.S. Air Force. Her military career as
a Nurse included a tour of duty in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam.
She then left the Air Force and attended medical school in
Athens, OH, and then returned to active duty for an OB/GYN
residency at Wright-Patterson AFB and Wright State
University in Dayton, OH. After residency she was
stationed in Japan; Germany; Las Vegas, NV; Wichita, KS; and
Belleville, IL. She retired as a Colonel after 35+
years of service, moved to Georgetown, OH, December
2003, and started providing OB/GYN care to the local community
in January 2004 .
