Nebraska Medicine Named to List of Top Women's Health Programs
Nebraska Medicine is honored to be named to the 2017 edition of “100 hospitals and health systems with great women’s health programs” by Becker’s Hospital Review. The hospitals included on the list support award-winning programs in women’s health, breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, gynecology and women’s heart care. Nebraska Medicine is the only health care system in Nebraska to be included on the list.
The list also recognizes hospitals with forward-thinking labor and delivery departments and recognition for their maternity care. Many are high volume referral centers for their community, servicing women with health care needs across the spectrum.
“Women from all over Nebraska and the region rely on our comprehensive team of board-certified specialists,” says Carl V. Smith, MD, chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Nebraska Medicine. “From gynecologic issues to high-risk pregnancies, mental health and cancer screenings, we have the most advanced and compassionate medical care. Patients can be confident that they’re in good hands.”
