  • Primary care – It is within your power to prevent or reduce your chances of illness, through regular screenings, vaccinations, symptom awareness and healthy lifestyle choices. And while prevention is the goal, early detection is important as well, because diseases such as cancer are often most treatable when found early. Learn more about primary care.
  • Sexual health – Sexual health entails embracing and enjoying your sexuality throughout your life. It is an important part of physical and emotional health. Talk to your provider today if you have concerns about any sexual health issues. Find a doctor now.

Care after your 40s

There are a number of medical conditions that are more common in women over the age of 50. Health concerns that increase with age include abnormal blood sugar levels, cancer, chronic pain, heart disease, menopause and osteoporosis. Make sure you stay in control of your health by talking to your health care provider about any concerns you have.

Bone health

Our radiologists provide bone densitometry tests to classify bone mass as normal, osteopenia or osteoporosis. These scans use dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), which is fast, non-invasive and painless. Learn more about bone imaging.

Breast health

We offer comprehensive diagnostic services such as 3-D mammography, biopsies, ultrasounds and needle localizations. If needed, our breast patient navigator program is available to guide you from the time a possible abnormality is discovered through treatment and beyond. Learn more about breast health.

Digestive health

It is important to understand how the gastrointestinal (GI) tract works and to know that women have symptoms and issues with the GI track that are different from men. In fact, there are symptoms that may be associated with possible worsening of GI problems. These differences may present with unique symptoms in women for shared diseases or even unique diagnoses for women. Learn about treatments for digestive disorders.


Many of the conditions that affect your gynecologic, reproductive and sexual health can be detected early through proper screenings and tests. When necessary, we offer minimally invasive surgery for conditions that affect the female reproductive or urinary systems:

Heart health

From treating arrhythmia to heart disease, our cardiologists and skilled specialists combine medical excellence with personalized care. Using minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, we treat heart valve disease, aortic aneurysms, heart failure and more. Learn more about heart health.

Is it time for a mammogram?

Take charge of your breast health through proper screenings and early detection. A mammogram can detect a lump in your breast months — and even years — before you can feel it. We are home to one of the most advanced screening technologies available for the early detection of breast cancer: digital tomosynthesis (also known as 3-D mammography).
