The Institute for Women's Health

The Institute for Women's Health

The Institute for Women's Health at NYM draws from a comprehensive network of services, specialists, and resources to design individualized care programs for each patient, emphasizing prevention and wellness. Individualized women's care is continually adapted to help women find health, well-being, and peace of mind through every stage of life.

While we treat all of the various health conditions that may arise in women's lives, we go well beyond that, by offering programs to anticipate and prevent conditions that are particularly common in women. We are also able to connect women to virtually any kind of specialized care that might be useful as different needs arise or are anticipated. The Institute allows women to address their unique and changing health needs through one network of leading professionals who are always looking forward.

The Institute's panel of professionals includes physicians specializing in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as in primary care, all areas of internal medicine and surgery, and specialists in many other fields.
