If you are a woman, you know how important it is to have healthcare providers who understand how your unique needs change throughout life. From routine exams to surgical procedures, Med Center Health can care for you through every stage of life.
Women & Newborn Services
The Medical Center at Bowling Green has been delivering babies since 1926. Our family-centered maternity care unit provides compassionate, quality medical care in a comfortable and welcoming setting. From prenatal education to birthing services, including certified nurse midwives, The Medical Center is there for you. And, if you had a cesarean section in the past but are now considering natural birth for your next child, you should know that the Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) success rate at The Medical Center is higher than the national average (78% vs. the national average of 70%).
The Medical Center also has access to maternal-fetal medicine for high risk pregnancies through Norton Children’s Services and The Perinatal Group. This includes specialized care for women carrying multiples and for women facing difficult pregnancies such as with premature labor, maternal hypertension and gestational diabetes.
Med Center Health participates in “Babies Are Worth The Wait,” a March of Dimes collaborative designed to prevent premature births and to promote healthy outcomes. By working with physicians and educating the public, we have successfully reduced the rate of early elective deliveries to less than the national average (1.5%).
For those smallest patients who need extra care, The Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides exceptional care, including the Nicview camera so parents can check in on their little one when away from the hospital. Our Level 2 NICU helps keep parents and high risk infants—including those who were born premature or who have infection or respiratory problems—together, close to home.
Med Center Health’s Women’s Health Specialists has six physicians, four certified nurse midwives and a support staff of caring professionals available to serve you in a warm and friendly environment. Our providers are available on-call 24 hours a day for any need you might have. To schedule an appointment, call 270-781-0075.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Gynecological surgeries, such as hysterectomies, at The Medical Center at Bowling Green can be performed with the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System for a minimally-invasive procedure that results in less pain, fewer complications, a shorter hospital stay, and smaller incisions for less scarring. With the da Vinci Surgical System, you can get back to your life and your family faster.
