Exploring Women’s Services

Women’s services are those healthcare services dedicated to the unique needs of women. These services include everything from reproductive health and wellness to maternity care, new motherhood support, and breast cancer care.

  • Breast cancer screening is typically performed via mammography, or X-ray imaging of the breasts. Mercy Hospital offers screening and diagnostic digital mammography services with online appointment scheduling options for your convenience.
  • Women are at a higher risk for osteoporosis than men as they age. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, also known as DEXA or DXA, is a diagnostic imaging procedure available at Mercy Hospital that measures the density of the bones to diagnose osteoporosis and help your physician develop a long-term treatment plan.
  • Maternity care at Mercy Hospital includes prenatal and postnatal education and support, as well as birthing services and facilities. Our family-oriented birthing suites incorporate everything you need for a healthy and positive birthing process, including access to surgical services and a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
