GREENSBORO – Cone Health’s newest addition – the Cone Health MedCenter for Women – is a one-stop shop for women seeking medical care in Greensboro.
The facility, which combines medical care and support, opened its doors at 930 Third Street and welcomed its first patients on Monday after years of planning and preparation.
“It’s been a good four years,” said Kelly Leggett, the medical center’s chief clinical transformation officer. “It started with interviewing our staff, our community, our patients and finding out what they need in a center for women that can give them all the care they need.”
The MedCenter for Women offers prenatal and gynecological care as well as ultrasound and mammography. Other services include high-risk maternal care, genetic counseling, physiotherapy, breastfeeding support, prenatal yoga and much more.
The center, housed in a two-story, 30,000-square-foot building, isn’t Cone Health’s first MedCenter, but it’s the first to be women-only, Leggett said.
“(Women) have special needs and a lot of it is about reproductive health. We wanted women to come here and feel safe and supported, and know that everyone here is specifically educated about women’s health.”
Director Walidah Karim-Rhoades sees the center as a place where women in their youth can receive medical care and continue their pregnancy, menopause and other specific challenges facing women.
