COURT HOUSE – After Sept. 15, Cape Regional Medical Center will no longer offer maternity services, The Press of Atlantic City reports.
The hospital currently has two OB/GYNs; one of them is leaving to join a larger medical group at Shore Medical Center in Somers Point. 
The hospital attempted to recruit new physicians but was unsuccessful. Nurses and other support staff are not set to be laid off. A hospital spokesperson told The Press maternity services will return if adequate staffing is found.
This comes despite the hospital’s recent expansion and fundraising efforts in the emergency and radiology departments, The Press reports.
After Sept. 15, expectant mothers will need to travel out of Cape May County for prenatal care.
