Health Care Tailored for You

From breast health to gynecological services, to heart care, maternity, age management and more, we are dedicated to keeping you as healthy as possible.

 

Women's Health & Wellness

We know how busy you are, but we also want you to pause and take a moment to take care of yourself. St. John's Regional Medical Center offers an array of preventive health services as well as specialized care because we know how important you are to your loved ones.

St. John's Regional Medical Center wants to ensure that every woman has access to compassionate, high quality health care. Our Maternity Center, Imaging Services, and the Integrated Breast Center at St. John's are staffed with nurses and doctors who provide care with compassion and respect.


Gynecologic Services

Dignity Health is focused on providing the best health care options for the many conditions that affect our female patients. Common conditions we treat at St. John's are:

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Menopause
  • Prolapse
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Cysts

Gynecological Surgery

We offer minimally invasive gynecological surgery, so you can return to the activities you enjoy sooner. Generally, the incisions are smaller, hospital stays are shorter and recovery time is reduced substantially.
 

At St. John's Regional Medical Center, we are here to offer you the support and care you need to heal completely. We're here to listen and respond to ensure that you have the support you need to recover as quickly as possible.


Heart Care for Women

Heart disease remains the number one killer of women and we are here to improve your odds. At St. John’s hospitals, we recognize that women have unique lifestyle and health care needs and we tailor our heart services specifically to each person. 


Imaging and Mammography

Diagnostic services are an important part of maintaining your overall health. Women need preventive screenings to remain healthy and keep abreast of health issues before they become serious. St. John’s offers imaging specific to the needs of women, including bone density screenings, mammography, and other breast exams. An annual mammogram is recommended for all women age 40 and older. St. John’s hospitals features full-service breast imaging with advanced equipment for digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and more. Our skilled staff is here to provide a comfortable experience.

The Integrated Breast Center at St. John's hospitals

The Integrated Breast Center (IBC) at St. John’s hospitals is a patient-centered program led by a multidisciplinary team of breast cancer care experts. Best of all, services at the IBC are free of charge. Our team reviews new and recurrent breast cancer cases and develops a personalized treatment plan with follow-up care. After, the patient can begin working with our oncology nurse navigator in their own unique treatment process using the latest scientific advances, personalized medicine, and mindful lifestyle approach.

Maternity Center

Having a baby is one of the most amazing moments in a woman’s life. We are here to provide mother and baby a loving start to that process. We have one of the most advanced neonatal intensive care units (NICU) in the area and we offer prenatal/birthing classes prior to the baby’s arrival. 


Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Maternal-fetal medicine is a type of specialty care for women with high-risk pregnancies. Your doctor may recommend a maternal-fetal medicine specialist (often called an MFM doctor) to provide you with personalized care until you give birth. An MFM doctor is an OB/GYN doctor with advanced training in caring for women and their unborn babies during a high-risk pregnancy.

At Dignity Health, providing maternal-fetal medicine is a team effort. It involves your doctor and specialists who work together to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery.


Urologic Incontinence (UI) in Women

Urinary incontinence (UI) is the loss of bladder control. Anyone can experience urinary incontinence, but it becomes most common with age. Urinary incontinence in women can be caused by pregnancy and vaginal childbirth, genetic factors, obesity and other medical conditions.
 

There are several different types of incontinence, and your doctor will determine which type you have by reviewing your complete medical history, discussing your symptoms with you and performing some common tests.
