Keeping women healthy

Life is busy, but your health should always come first. You have the power to prevent or reduce your chances of illness, through regular screenings, vaccinations, symptom awareness and healthy lifestyle choices. And while prevention is the goal, early detection is important too, since diseases like cancer are often most treatable when found early.

Screening tests, such as Pap tests, mammograms and colonoscopies, are especially important because some diseases can spread in the early stages without any noticeable symptoms. Mammography, for instance, is reported to be the single most effective method of early breast cancer detection, since it can identify cancer several years before physical symptoms develop.

At Edward-Elmhurst, we specialize in keeping women healthy. Our expert care team includes physicians who specialize in women’s health, such as board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists, certified midwives and gynecologic oncologists. The team provides innovative, high-quality care in convenient locations to accommodate your busy schedule.

Women’s health services

Edward-Elmhurst provides a full range of women’s health services, including:

Women’s heart health

Heart disease is the number one killer of women. There's a simple, painless test you can take to check for heart disease years before symptoms appear. A heart scan is the safest and most accurate screening tool for detecting the early build-up of calcium in the coronary arteries, the most common cause of heart disease. Learn more about our heart program and Illinois' first heart hospital of its kind.
