Bailey Runkles, DO

GYNECOLOGY & OBSTETRICS
Dr. Runkles will begin taking appointments the summer of 2017.

JRMC has been recruiting an obstetrician/gynecologist for several years. We are thrilled to have Dr. Bailey Runkles joining us in the summer of 2017. Having an OB/Gyn physician in the Jamestown will be great for patients as more gynecological procedures and another option for OB care and C-Section services will be available in the community as well as having a resource to support and collaborate with the other physicians in the community who are currently doing deliveries.

Dr. Runkles shares that she is very excited about her commitment to Jamestown. “I pursued a career in medicine with the desire to help people. It wasn’t until I was actually rotating on OBGYN as a 3rd year medical student that I realized I love caring for women. As one of three sisters I love how my job allows me to be there for my patients from the birth of their first child throughout the rest of their life. Jamestown has a wonderful group of family physicians who provide excellent obstetric care. My goal is to be an asset to their practice and provide prenatal care to those higher risk patients who would otherwise have to drive an hour away for care. Additionally it will be a benefit to the community to have a gynecologist providing those desired procedures right in their hometown. When we were looking for a place to land my husband and I were searching for a small town with a community that we could grow into. We were overwhelmed by the welcome and support we received when we came to visit. I believe the Jamestown community will benefit us just as much as will be of benefit,” said Dr. Runkles.

Dr. Runkles is finishing her residency at Oklahoma State University. She has been trained in high-risk obstetrics as well as diverse gynecology. Dr. Runkles has a passion for education as well as education for her patients, allowing them to take control of their own health.
