New MedCenter for Women Combines Services for Better Care
The approach not only offers convenience, but a way to reduce health disparities.
With busy schedules and women finding more demands on their schedules, convenience is key. The new Cone Health MedCenter for Women was built with convenience in mind.
Cone Health MedCenter for Women combines innovative medical care with a variety of support services, which translates to increased health care access to serve all women.
“Not only is this more convenient,” says Cone Health Chief Operating Officer Dr. Mary Jo Cagle, “but it also provides a comprehensive way to address one of Cone Health’s strategic priorities of tackling health disparities in our communities regardless of a community member’s health insurance or a lack thereof.”
“You can’t expect a woman to eat a balanced diet during pregnancy when she has an unmet food need,” says Cone Health MedCenter for Women Director Walidah Karim-Rhoades, DNP. “Combining the medical and support services, allows us to better address even the non-medical issues that directly impact the health of the mother and the newborn, like nutrition.”
Cone Health MedCenter for Women offers a host of gynecological and obstetric services. These include:
- High-risk maternal care
- Prenatal and gynecology care
- Genetics counseling
- Breastfeeding support
- Ultrasound and mammography
- Nutritional education
- Integrated behavioral health
- Prenatal yoga
- Physical therapy
- Onsite lab services
The new two-story, 30,000 square-foot medical office building opens May 3. It is at 930 Third St., Greensboro.
