A history of exceptional care, centered on you.
The concept of Woman's originated in the mid 1950s when Drs. Julius H. Mullins, Sr., Jack Jones and Cary Dougherty, along with 16 other physicians, dreamed of a facility that would be centered on the unique needs of women and newborn babies. In 1968, Woman's opened its doors, becoming one of the first women’s specialty hospitals in the nation.
Since that time our private, nonprofit organization has become one of the largest women’s specialty hospitals in the United States and is recognized throughout the country for its innovative programs for women and their families. Our comprehensive services reach from obstetrical and cancer care, to weight loss surgery and fitness services, to orthopedics and breast care. Resources include a mobile mammography program and Woman's Center for Wellness to provide the women, men, infants and children in our community a vast array of preventative health services.
In 2012, Woman's relocated all services to its 100 Woman’s Way. Our campus is designed to provide the most innovative care in an environment that welcomes families. Our soothing, healing atmosphere is focused on meeting women’s and infants’ needs.
Governed by a board of community volunteers, Joint Commission accredited and a Nursing Magnet® hospital, Woman's signifies excellence and quality patient care.
Today, Woman's ranks 17th in the country in total births, with more than 8,500 deliveries each year. Woman's is recognized throughout the country for its innovative programs for women and their families.
