VCU Medical Center—General Information:
The VCU Women’s Health Center (WHC) at Stony Point, established in 1993, is an award-winning model program providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary outpatient women’s health services. The WHC was developed with input from the Women’s Health Community Advisory Council, established in 1987 by the chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The WHC received the National Association of Professionals in Women’s Health Award in 1998 for the best comprehensive outpatient women’s health services in the United States, and the Platinum Award in 2002 from Professional Research Consultants for its innovative design to meet the privacy and confidentiality needs of women.
Among the services that are offered in a “one-stop shopping” mode are: obstetrics & gynecology, primary care medicine, bone densitometry, breast imaging and breast health clinic, surgical oncology, reproductive endocrinology, maternal fetal medicine, psychiatry, genetics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and nutrition.
The WHC offers a range of health education and health promotion classes, such as a weight loss program offered by a registered dietitian; prenatal classes; and other wellness programs such as smoking cessation, healing touch and massage therapy. Health care providers at the WHC serve as preceptors for medical students, residents, nurse practitioners, and midwifery students, who rotate through the Center.
The VCU Medical Center in downtown Richmond likewise offers complete women’s health services, and the main hospital will soon devote a complete surgical floor to women. At the McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center, a graduate of the VCU Women’s Health Residency Track directs the Women’s Health Center, which provides primary gynecologic and preventive care.
