Gifford Welcomes Ob/Gyn Dr. Elisabeth Nigrini

Tuesday, April 7, 2015
Dr. Elizabeth NigriniDr. Elisabeth Nigrini has joined Gifford Health Care, expanding the comprehensive women’s health care team to three Ob/Gyn doctors and four certified nurse midwives.

A native of Pittsburgh, PA, Nigrini discovered early in life that she enjoyed teaching, working with people, and that she had a particular interest in women’s issues. She mentored adolescent girls as an undergraduate at Swarthmore College, was awarded a graduate fellowship in public affairs, and has volunteered with counseling hotlines and in women’s shelters.

In the field of women’s health she found a career that combined her driving interests. “In my third year of medical school I did a rotation in obstetrics and it was so rewarding,” she said. “I found a way to combine medicine with my commitment to public service, mentoring, and working with women.”

Nigrini has worked with underserved women in Tanzania and the United States, and had additional training in maternal-fetal medicine at Johns Hopkins University. She likes helping women through their labor and delivery experience, and most enjoys establishing continuing care relationships with her Ob/Gyn patients.

 “Working with women’s health has an educational component that I enjoy because I feel I can have an impact,” said Nigrini. “People are willing to make changes when facing transitional periods. A woman may quit smoking when pregnant, or be more open to information about lifestyle changes—these things can impact an entire family.”

The move to Randolph is an especially good fit for Nigrini and her family. Her husband, Andy Erickson, MD, is also working at Gifford and they both wanted to practice medicine in a hospital where they could establish ongoing relationships with their patients. They also wanted to raise their two young daughters in a small community where they could enjoy the outdoors.

Board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Nigrini brings a set of skills and experience that enhance the comprehensive approach of Gifford’s women’s care services, particularly for women with complicated or higher risk pregnancies. She is currently accepting new patients. Call her at Gifford Ob/Gyn & Midwifery at (802) 728-2401.
