Women's health services we provide
Our specialists understand best practices of healthcare for you. No matter your condition, our services are comprehensive and effective.
Bone density screening
As women age, osteoporosis and bone fractures become more common. Our imaging center offers noninvasive bone density screenings to assess these concerns. These screenings also address other risk factors, including bone loss, using minimal radiation. Bone density screenings require no anesthesia and use less than one-tenth of the amount of radiation present in a standard X-ray.
Proper breast health is best maintained through regular and early screenings. As such, we employ advanced technology to screen and diagnose potential breast abnormalities. Available tests include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 3D mammograms, which combine multiple X-rays to form a three-dimensional image of your breast. 3D mammograms provide greater visibility on abnormalities that may be present.
Cancer care program
Next to breast cancer, lung cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers amongst women. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 49 percent of domestic diagnoses are for women. Further, lung cancer characteristics in women differ from those in men, and women are more likely to develop lung cancers not associated with smoking.
Our hospital is equipped to detect lung cancer at its earliest stages. With advanced radiation therapy treatment, our oncologists can better target hard-to-reach tumors in the lungs, as well as the breast. In addition to surgery and chemotherapy, we also frequently offer clinical trials for breast, lung and ovarian cancers.
As an American College of Cardiology-accredited (ACC) Chest Pain Center, our cardiac specialists meet the highest standards of care for patients experiencing cardiac events. Remember, heart attack symptoms present differently in women than in men. They often include include lightheadedness, jaw pain, lower abdominal pain and nausea.
Our gynecological services extend to women of all ages. Whether you require a well-woman exam or one of our many available treatments, our gynecological and urogynecological specialists are here to ensure that you return to stress-free, everyday activities. Services we offer include treatments for menopause, infertility, urinary incontinence, menstrual bleeding and overactive bladder.
Health complications can be emotionally taxing. Our hospital prioritizes your mental health just as much as physical health. At our Transitions Behavioral Health inpatient facility, we treat a range of mental health and addiction disorders in a supportive, compassionate environment ideal for proper healing. This includes issues unique to women.
The goal of this short-term program is to help stabilize your condition so that you can move to a less acute level of care. Our facility features living quarters, quiet spaces, therapy rooms, a dining area and private courtyard.
