Specialized services for women’s health
There is so much more to keeping a woman healthy than just annual exams by her OB/GYN. That’s why we offer services and specialists for all aspects of a woman’s health. Some of our specialty programs include:
- Heart Care Program with a dedicated heart care tower and two Accredited Chest Pain Centers
- Birthing Center with low C-section rates, a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and childbirth and parent education classes
- Kidney, Bladder and Urology Program with subspecialty trained urogynecologists who focus on treating pelvic floor prolapse and other conditions specific to the female pelvis
- Cancer Care Program that has been approved by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer (CoC) as a community cancer program
When possible, our doctors and surgeons use the least invasive treatments. In some cases, medication can provide the least invasive option. When surgery is required, we offer advanced laparoscopy and robotic surgery, which are minimally invasive. These types of procedures help reduce blood loss and pain, while leading to quicker recovery times.
