Recognizing Dr. Karen Raimer
In the 20 years Dr. Raimer has served as co-director of the OB-GYN residency program at Bayfront Medical Center as well as our senior maternal-fetal medicine physician, she has provided outstanding leadership. Growing the residency program from 12 to 16 residents and spearheading the Community Residency Program Forum at the Council on Residency Education in OB-GYN (CREOG) are just a few of her many accomplishments.

Dr. Raimer recently stepped down from her co-director role due to new ACGME requirements but remains a key member of our maternal-fetal medicine team, providing outstanding care and sharing her knowledge with the OB-GYN residents during their high-risk pregnancy rotations. Please join us in saying thank you and let’s look forward together to her ongoing contributions to the highest level of care and education.
