Introduction: Women’s health at all stages of life

by Katrina McPherson, MD, Vice President of Operations for the Medical Group

Women’s healthcare needs are different from men’s. While chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke and cancer are the top causes of death in both women and men, the way these diseases look and act differs between the sexes.

The CMH Women’s Center is an all-inclusive center for women’s health. Our care team is committed to addressing women’s unique medical issues and risk factors in a friendly, warm and welcoming environment.

From a young woman’s first gynecologic exam through the menopausal years, the CMH Women’s Center provides personalized, comprehensive medical care of the highest quality. As a hub for women’s healthcare needs, the Women’s Center care team works closely with patients and other medical specialists to manage and treat conditions throughout a woman’s lifespan.

Our team of OB-GYNs and certified nurse midwives have diverse backgrounds, training and approaches to patient care. I’m confident that most women will find a care provider at the CMH Women’s Center who meets their needs for quality and cooperative healthcare.

Specialized women’s healthcare goes beyond pregnancy and birth. I invite you to explore more in this issue of the CMH Health Compass and online at columbiamemorial.org.
