Women's cancer care

We provide both surgical procedures as well as infusion services to treat a range of cancers, including those specific to women, as part of our cancer care program. Our surgical oncologists remove malignant tumors to prevent the spread of breast cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer and uterine cancer, among others. We also offer in-house outpatient chemotherapy treatment and genetic testing to assess our patients' cancer risk.

Emotional wellness

When it comes to mental health, we understand the challenges women face. Many women experience anxiety or depression at some point in their lives. If you or a loved one needs emotional or behavioral health support, our compassionate specialists are here to help you find the care you need.

For women 55 and older needing immediate mental health support, we offer a short-term inpatient mental health program. Our interdisciplinary team helps senior women address and manage behavioral health concerns using individual and group therapy, skills training and medication management.

Gynecologic services

Our gynecologists treat patients using a caring medical approach. Our specialists provide gynecologic services ranging from routine well-woman exams to complex surgery.

Women's heart health

Cardiologists within our cardiovascular program have extensive experience in preventing and treating heart disease. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), heart disease is the number one killer of American women. Heart attack symptoms can present differently in women and include nausea, jaw pain, pain in the lower abdomen and extreme fatigue. Regular well-woman visits and a strong relationship with your healthcare provider are the best ways to stave off heart disease.

Bone care

If you or a loved one are concerned about osteoporosis (brittle bones that break easily due to age), our imaging center offers bone density screenings, a noninvasive diagnostic procedure measures bone loss and assesses various risk factors. This simple exam requires no anesthesia and uses very little radiation — less than one-tenth the amount in a standard X-ray.
