OB/GYN Meghan Malentacchi, MD, FACOG, Joins MedStar Southern Maryland

April 27, 2017

Dr. Meghan Malentacchi, the newest OB/GYN to join MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, brings with her experience using the latest in robotic surgery technology, having learned how to perform this less-invasive surgery that has the benefit of shortening recovery times after procedures. She also brings with her experience serving in the military at the Malcolm Grow Medical Center at nearby Joint Base Andrews.

“In the military, we were expected to be hands-on from the start,” said Dr. Malentacchi. “We were also taught it’s always important to develop close relationships with our patients, particularly since OB/GYNs deal with very personal questions, and because good prenatal and preventative OB/GYN care are important to a woman’s health.”

Dr. Malentacchi says she looks forward to serving this community and helping patients through their pregnancy journey to delivering a healthy baby. She also wants to provide health care for women throughout their lives, as long-term relationships with patients mean addressing medical issues before they develop into problems.

Dr. Malentacchi earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut, her MD from their School of Medicine and completed her residency in OB/GYN at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT. Prior to joining MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, she was an OB/ GYN staff physician at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and the Malcolm Grow Medical Center at Andrews Air Force Base, where she also served as Assistant Flight Commander.
