History

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, infants and children in our community a vast array of preventative health services.

Because our scope of offerings extends much further than our hospital doors, we’ve updated our name to Woman’s which more clearly encompasses the breadth of our wellness programs and community outreach.

In 2012, Woman’s relocated all services to its new hospital, located just six miles from its original site, at 100 Woman’s Way. New Woman’s 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, which funds research, community education, and services in order to improve the health of women and infants. Joint Commission accredited and a Nursing Magnet hospital, Woman’s signifies excellence and quality patient care.
