Caring for Women Throughout Every Life Stage
At Mercy Health, we offer personal, high-quality care for all women through every stage of life in Cincinnati. Whether you are looking for a gynecologist or a highly specialized procedure, our team has you covered. In following our promise to make every patient’s life better in mind, body and spirit, our services cover the continuum of women’s health needs in Cincinnati including gynecologists, maternity services, breast and bone health services, health promotion and wellness, screenings (including mammography), nutrition, education, support groups, preventive medicine and referral for treatment and coordination of care. Board-certified specialists also provide routine gynecological care, infertility evaluations and advanced gynecological surgery. Our OB/GYN team provides Cincinnati's most expert, compassionate care.
Family Birthing Centers
Anderson Hospital, Fairfield Hospital and West Hospital offer compassionate maternity services with a Level 2 special care nursery. Anderson and Fairfield hospitals are designated as “Baby Friendly” by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative for providing an optimal level of care for infant feeding. They are the only two hospitals in southwest Ohio to receive such a designation and two of only 110 in the U.S. Our new West Hospital will aim for the designation, too, once its Family Birthing Center has been open long enough to qualify. Anderson Hospital offers state-of-the-art, expert obstetric services where every suite is designed so mothers can deliver and recover with their newborn in one room. At Fairfield and West Hospitals, mothers and babies receive quality, compassionate care close to home with newly remodeled — or brand new — postpartum suites that provide a spa-like setting. View the Fairfield Hospital Family Birthing Center Brochure. At the bottom of this page, you will find video tours and maternity forms for our Mercy Health Family Birthing Centers.
Care at Every Stage of a Woman’s Life
The Cincinnati Women’s Center offers compassionate care, from maternity to menopause and beyond, coordinated entirely within the Mercy Health Cincinnati system. Capabilities include: Obstetrical and gynecology services (OB/GYN), treatment of menopausal problems, advanced breast care, gynecological surgery, and treatment and physical therapy for pelvic floor conditions. Expanded capabilities include Videourodynamics and a Pelvic Floor Center within the Women’s Center. West Hospital is the only hospital in the Mercy system to offer Mona Lisa therapy, a laser procedure that can reverse effects of vaginal atrophy.
Digital and Mobile Mammography
We offer digital mammography which delivers a clearer, more detailed picture providing you with the most advanced technology available for the early detection of breast cancer.
The Mercy Health Mobile Mammography Units provide a low-cost, efficient method of breast screening to the community. The Mobile Mammography Program makes screening mammography quick and easy— mammograms on the mobile units take approximately 15 minutes.
The units use the same FDA and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA)-approved equipment as our hospitals and meet the standards of the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA).
