Carmel Womens Center

CARMEL - St.Vincent announced the groundbreaking of the four-story, 96,703-square-foot women's center, and 512-space expansion of the existing parking lot on the St.Vincent Carmel Hospital campus.

The St.Vincent Women's Center will be an outpatient facility that will include obstetrics and gynecology; maternal fetal medicine; breast care including mammography and ultrasound services; full service café; full service pharmacy; concierge patient navigation; physical therapy with a focus on pelvic health; preventive well health services; community room and chapel; and a women's boutique that provides wigs and bras for breast cancer survivors, bariatric supplies and more.

The St.Vincent Women's Center focuses on gender-based medicine specifically designed to address disorders that are unique and predominant in women, or that have a different disease course for women.

Patients will see a clinically integrated care delivery model across all care providers within the St.Vincent Women's Center. The new outpatient facility will feature a highly integrated electronic medical records system to enhance patient care and facilitate seamless referrals between physicians and other providers within the center. Having multiple specialists providing high quality, focused care for women on a single day in one location improves care delivery and creates unprecedented clinical integration. A women's center care navigator will also assist patients with questions, appointment scheduling, navigation and education depending on the needs of patients and family members.

The St.Vincent Women's Center is expected to be completed by early 2015.
