The mission of the Department of Women’s Health is to promote the health of women throughout the lifecycle through care, education and innovation. The department currently includes academic specialists in general obstetrics and gynecology but also includes the subspecialties of maternal-fetal medicine, gynecologic oncology, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
Additionally and gratefully, support for our patients and our learners comes from several community-based providers in general obstetrics and gynecology as well as specialists in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, gynecologic oncology, and maternal-fetal medicine. We currently train obstetrical and gynecology residents, while educating medical students from the Dell Medical School.
The vision of the Department of Women’s Health is to promote health and equality in care delivery across the lifecycle of a woman regardless of her need or ability to pay.
Early initiatives include recruiting a strong academic team, developing a model for integrated delivery of obstetric care, and working with the community to better understand current gaps in care.
Pregnant women across Central Texas will benefit from enhanced health care under a redesigned system of perinatal care.
