Women’s Health Services: Less Hassle, More TLC

With work, family responsibilities and everything in between, women are plenty busy. Because they’re so busy taking care of everybody else, they might also put their own health on the back burner.

You probably wear several different hats: teacher, advisor, boardroom warrior, chauffeur, personal chef, caregiver—and that’s just in a single day. But who takes care of you?

Holland Hospital and Lakeshore Health Partners are proud to say, “We do!” We make your health our top priority, whether you’re planning to get pregnant or need an annual mammogram. Plus, we do everything possible to make scheduling and accessing your care hassle-free.

From obstetrics and gynecology to comprehensive breast services to midlife and menopause support, Holland Hospital’s Women’s Health Services are wide-ranging and designed around one VIP: you.
