Women’s Care

Dedicated to meeting the unique health needs of women throughout eastern North Carolina.

An ongoing relationship based on trust

It’s an unfortunate fact: Many women delay seeking the care they need, whether it’s putting off routine checkups because they’re too busy caring for others, or it’s something more serious — such as avoiding prenatal care or not knowing where to turn for help with post-partum depression. New research suggests that many women even ignore the symptoms of heart disease and don’t seek immediate treatment during a heart attack. Here at Vidant Health, we aim to change all that. How? By helping women develop a trusting, lifelong relationship with our team.

Through a variety of programs and services, we’re raising awareness about the importance of early detection for a range of women’s health issues—and ideally, getting more women to recognize the importance of preventative care, too.
