The St.Vincent Carmel Women’s Center will officially open to the public on Saturday, March 14, with a Grand Opening Celebration from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The St.Vincent Carmel Women’s Center, a member of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and not-for-profit health system, will focus on gender-based medicine specifically designed to address disorders that are unique and predominant in women, or that have a different disease course for women.
The women’s center will include obstetrics and gynecology; maternal fetal medicine; breast care, including mammography and ultrasound services; physical therapy; pelvic health; bone health; preventive well health services; cardiology; concierge patient and billing navigation; a community room for wellness programs like cooking and fitness classes; a full-service café; chapel; and a women’s health boutique that provides durable medical equipment like wigs and bras for breast cancer survivors, bariatric supplies and more.
Patients will benefit from a clinically-integrated care delivery model across all care providers within the St.Vincent Carmel Women’s Center. The new outpatient facility will feature a highly integrated electronic medical records system to enhance patient care and facilitate seamless referrals between physicians and other providers within the center. Having multiple specialists providing high-quality, focused care for women on a single day in one location improves care delivery and creates unprecedented clinical integration. Patient and billing navigators will be available to assist patients with questions related to their care, appointment scheduling, education and insurance pre-certification depending on the needs of patients and family members.
The St.Vincent Carmel Women’s Center will host a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, March 14 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The community is invited to go on guided tours of the new facility, partake in free clinical screenings and exams, ask women’s health questions to a panel of St.Vincent physicians, participate in free baby boot camp and stroller fitness classes by Kara Babcock, and attend a free keynote presentation and book signing by guest speaker Rachel Stafford, author of Hands Free Mama.
