Health care and services for each stage of a woman’s life

Valley Health Partners (VHP) Center for Women’s Medicine provides comprehensive health care and specialized services for women of all ages.

VHP Center for Women’s Medicine offers obstetrics and gynecology, regardless of the fact patients may not have insurance or are unable to pay. 

The practice provides care by specialists who are educated to treat high-risk pregnant women in one convenient location. Ultrasounds are performed on-site, and services are available to help women get the care they need: transportation to and from visits, a nurse care manager to help navigate their care, outreach services to identify individual needs, a therapist and social workers to help patients integrate continuity of care in the community. 

VHP Center for Women’s Medicine is unique in that it also provides care to pregnant women with substance use disorders, including medications, recovery specialists and care managers.

In addition to providing outstanding health care, the practice offers an incentive program to encourage pregnant women to attend prenatal appointments and parenting classes. Lactation support is readily available.

For women who are not pregnant, VHP Center for Women’s Medicine provides women’s well visits. For women who have gynecologic disorders, clinicians are able to offer a wide range of treatment based on a patient’s individuality. The physicians are trained surgeons and would be able to provide care in the operating room if needed.

For patients who prefer to discuss health care in a language other than English, VHP Center for Women’s Medicine provides multilanguage interpreter services. Two full-time Spanish interpreters work in the clinic.
