Two Harbin Clinic Physicians Retire After Delivering 12,000 Babies in Rome

After practicing medicine in Rome for over 30 years each and delivering approximately 12,000 babies between the two, Harbin Clinic Obstetricians/Gynecologists, Dr. W. Pope Jordan, III, and Dr. John T. Collins recently retired from their practices.

Dr. Jordan joined Norton Women’s Clinic on January 1, 1979 before it had become a part of the Harbin Clinic. It was in 1996 that the Norton’s group came on board with Harbin Clinic. Dr. Jordan’s practice was at the Harbin Clinic Norton Women's Clinic, 330 Turner McCall Blvd., Rome. During his 31 years of practice, Dr. Jordan delivered approximately 5,000 babies.  He reminisced that he never grew tired of the miracle of birth during his entire career.

Dr. Collins began his practice in Rome when he joined Rome Ob/GYN in June 1975, some 35 years ago.  Rome Ob/GYN later joined Harbin Clinic in 1998.  During Dr. Collins’ years of practice, he delivered more than 7,000 babies.  Dr. Collins still feels like every birth is a miracle and that he is just, “God’s mailman for babies,” he reflected.

Dr. Jordan received his Medical Doctorate degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.  He was board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology. His medical associations include: the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology, the South Atlantic Association of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the South Western Gynecological Assembly.
