ALTON — Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation announces that Dr. Olamide Kolade has joined the obstetrics and gynecology department at Alton Women’s Health Center, 2 Memorial Drive.
Kolade provides care for women of all ages with a special focus on high-risk pregnancy and management of menopausal issues.
“The relationship between an OB and his or her patient is lifelong, extending from family planning to childbirth to menopause,” Kolade said. “Therefore, it’s important that the relationship is built on trust. I’m dedicated to giving each patient options and helping her choose the one that is most comfortable for her at every stage in her life.”
Kolade earned his medical degree from the University of Ibadan College of Medicine in Ibadan, Nigeria, and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center through Weil-Cornell Medical College in New York.
