Women's Health through Every Phase of Life
With a network of doctors and healthcare professionals throughout central, western and northern Indiana as well as the south Chicago area in Illinois, Franciscan Health provides top-quality medical services to support women's health through each phase of life. We bring both cutting-edge services and personalized care to each community we serve, addressing the unique needs of female patients. We believe every patient deserves the best experience possible, whether she's having her annual mammogram or expecting her first baby.
Wellness and prevention
Realizing great care for health begins with a person’s daily lifestyle, Franciscan Health places an emphasis on wellness and prevention. We want to be partners in women's and children’s health by regularly providing educational opportunities, hosting health fairs, participating in local events and supporting health screenings and outreach activities. We care about the health of the members of our communities and take every opportunity to show our support.
Women's health and the growing family
When it’s time to plan your family, the professionals at Franciscan Health are the perfect option. Our pregnancy services can help a woman with prenatal care and pregnancy tests. As your due date draws nearer, our pregnancy and childbirth classes can help you prepare for the big day. Before and after pregnancy, our gynecological care helps keep a woman healthy through each stage of life.
State-of-the-art surgery for women
When our patients need surgery, we bring the latest technology to provide the best care possible. Techniques like robot-assisted surgery and minimally-invasive gynecologic surgeries are available at select locations to provide a more pleasant procedure with quicker recovery times. Our facilities staff some of the best medical practitioners in the industry, all working toward the goal of keeping patients as healthy as possible.
Advanced cancer care
Early detection and treatment is our focus throughout the Franciscan Health family. Our expert radiologists and medical staff work with cancer patients to diagnose and treat patients of all ages. Our mammogram services and oncology centers bring the best treatment to you, through both a hands-on treatment plan and compassionate care from diagnosis to remission.
Therapy services for women
Changes in posture, weight or hormonal factors, especially during pregnancy, can create pain in various places in your body. Our therapists focus on women’s health by designing individual programs of exercise, positioning and relaxation training, as well as post-delivery training.
