Women's Services

Addressing a woman's individual health care needs is a commitment we make by providing comprehensive care and support at all stages of her life. This includes not just gynecology and maternity care, but also aspects of cardiology and oncology that are unique to women.


Mercy Medical Center offers a full range of health services for women, from maternity services to the management of menopause. Traditional gynecologic surgery is offered, as well as newer, advanced surgeries that are minimally invasive. In addition, we provide a full range of cancer services, from breast cancer screenings to advanced treatments for breast and ovarian cancer.

Women and cancer

Mercy Medical Center is dedicated to providing supportive care for every step of a woman's cancer experience. From detection and treatment, to recovery and support through our cancer patient navigator, our hospitals are home to the latest diagnostic technologies and advanced surgical options. Our Mercy Cancer Center offers patients a full range of oncology services, including medical oncology, radiation oncology, and chemotherapy.


Getting a mammogram is still the gold standard for breast cancer detection, and the American Cancer Society recommends an annual mammography screening for all healthy women beginning at age 40. Mammograms help doctors detect abnormalities and changes in breast tissue before they start to cause symptoms. Early detection and treatment of breast cancer can be lifesaving.

The Imaging Center at Mercy Medical Center offers digital mammography services with computer-aided detection (CAD) technology, breast ultrasound, and stereotactic breast biopsy. Our team is made up of board-certified radiologists and registered imaging technologists. They work together to produce quality images and evaluations for our patients and their doctors.

  • Private birthing and postpartum suites
