The new entrance to The Queen's Medical Center is just the beginning of a transformation that is redefining what people should expect at a hospital. In the fall of 2004, this process will reach a significant milestone with the opening of a Women's Health Center, a destination not just for the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, but also for life enhancing services in a resort-like setting.

Although Queen's has always offered the best in medical care for women, these services have never before been pulled together in one place. A guest of the new Women's Health Center will enter Queen's via the porte cochere, where valet parking is available. The Women's Health Center will have convenient weekend and evening hours so women can come after work. As she enters Queen's, the Women's Health Center will be easy to find, because it will be located right in the lobby.

Guests will be received much as they would be by a hotel concierge, and then directed to desired services. There will be a boutique offering specialty items for women. There will be an executive kitchen for healthy cooking demos, and a large multipurpose room for support groups and classes. Classes will be geared to enhance the mind, body and spirit, with topics on aromatherapy, art therapy, Tai Chi, stroke, heart, osteoporosis, hormone replacement and infertility.

For women diagnosed with cancer, a "nurse navigator" will guide her from diagnosis to treatment, pulling together all resources, from joining support groups to finding the right specialists. The Women's Health Center will also feature mammography suites, ultrasound rooms, bone density testing, stereotactic biopsy services, a radiology read area and treatment rooms that can be used for massages, facials, Healing Touch or continence treatments.

Although the Women's Health Center is still a year away, there are valuable opportunities for women going on today. Queen's Wisdom of Women (WOW) classes have provided a wealth of information for women. More than 50 sessions on mind/body topics have been already been given this year.
