|Jennie Stuart Medical Center offers women's services to meet a wide-range of needs. We have accredited mammography units , a birthing floor that is second to none and a host of other services designed with women in mind.|
Especially for Women
From the moment you step off the elevator until you arrive in your room, you will know you are on a floor Especially for Women.
The new Especially for Women floor features comfortable, private birthing rooms, well equipped, high tech nurseries and a staff that is dedicated to the special needs of women and infants.
For a free tour of our Especially for Women floor so you can meet our staff and see what we have to offer, call us at (270) 887-0330.
Many of the floor's features are the result of feedback from former patients. One of the special improvements is a step-up viewing bench into the nursery for young children.
The hospital also added a closed-circuit camera system and incorporated a unique design to enhance the protection of infants. The hospital even has electronic devices to promote the security of our infants.
Within the new Jennie Stuart Outpatient Medical Imaging Center, we are proud to offer digital mammography services.
Digital mammography is now considered the most accurate technique to screen for breast cancer, surpassing film mammography for most patients. Whether your visit is for your annual screening procedure or if you are experiencing a problem, your mammogram will be performed by a dedicated mammographer in a pleasant environment, and your images will be interpreted by an expert in women's imaging.
Our mammography equipment is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR), which is a stamp of approval for both the equipment and staff providing the mammograms. Also, all radiologists who read the mammograms are board certified.
Mammograms are recommended for women 35 years or older to help detect breast cancer. Women with a family history of breast cancer should consider having a mammogram at a younger age.
Nursery & NICU
Lots of babies need extra medical attention after they're born, which is why Jennie Stuart Medical Center established a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to ensure their health - and give mothers additional peace of mind.
Our NICU cares for both premature and critically ill infants. In addition to being highly trained and using advanced technology, our NICU team utilizes a family-centered approach to neonatal care. The emphasis is on providing the family with as much information as possible, a process that often begins with a tour of the NICU before delivery.
Throughout your stay, our staff will carefully explain the baby's prognosis and course of treatment. We'll also try to arrange times for the mother to be with her newborn. Of course, fathers and grandparents are also welcome and encouraged to help nurture the tiny new life.
Essentially, our NICU staff works to help newborns begin life as healthy as possible.
