Women’s Health & Wellness
The Nurse Practitioner Program was developed with the woman’s needs in mind. This group of highly skilled clinicians with over 40 years of combined experience specializes in the care of low-risk OB/GYN and adolescent girls’ health and wellness, including teen pregnancy. Practicing under the rules and regulations of the state board of nursing, our nurse practitioners are able to diagnose medical conditions and to prescribe medications under the direction of a board-certified physician.
Adolescent Girl’s Health & Wellness
The teen years are an exiting and special time. Adolescent girls face many changes, including changes to their bodies. Our nurse practitioners help young women prepare for young adulthood and include as part of our treatment plans an introduction to gynecology care.
The needs of a pregnant teen are complex. Teens often do not fully understand their situation, from a social or physical standpoint. Physical demands on a developing body and social situations can be challenging. We work closely together in the care of our teen mothers by promoting education and access to resources and ensuring they do not feel alone. Our unique centering approach to teen pregnancy care brings together expectant teens who have a similar due date. We promote socialization and a support system that will carry them through their pregnancy and postnatal needs. This approach nurtures accountability and self-involvement and demonstrates our deep commitment to helping teens achieve their best health.
