Care for Women at Each Stage of Life
The Women's Center at Northwest Texas Healthcare System is devoted to providing care that women need at every stage of their lives. This includes advanced maternity care through the Childbirth Center, obstetrical and gynecological services, digital mammography and advanced diagnostic testing through the Women's Imaging Center, and two satellite Women's and Children's centers where both women and their children may receive diagnostic, treatment and preventive care services.
Northwest Texas Healthcare System Childbirth Center has a staff of highly trained obstetricians/gynecologists, maternal fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, anesthesiologists and neonatal nurses who are well prepared for both normal and high-risk births. The hospital has a specialized team to transport high-risk, expectant mothers from the northwest Texas region to the hospital, if needed, via LIFESTAR air medical transport that is staffed with an obstetrics nurse and flight paramedic.
Obstetrics and Gynecology
The Northwest Texas Healthcare System Obstetrics/Gynecology department offers quality care to women of all ages, with an emphasis on preventive health and education. Our prenatal care is comprehensive and includes: ultrasound, amniocentesis, childbirth classes, prenatal breastfeeding classes and labor and delivery unit tours. We treat all gynecologic conditions and have specialists in cancer care. When cancer is detected, the gynecology team works with medical oncologists, radiologists, surgeons and other specialists to coordinate care and clinical treatment protocols.
Women's Imaging Center
The Women's Imaging Center at Northwest Texas Healthcare System provides breast screenings, bone density scans and educational and support resources. Our goal is early detection and diagnosis of health problems. The earlier breast disease or other problems are detected, the better the chances of a successful treatment outcome.
Women's and Children's Center
Northwest Texas Healthcare System's Women’s and Children’s Healthcare Center (at two locations in Northeast and Southeast Amarillo) offers obstetric and gynecological services and pediatric care, as well as free transportation to and from medical appointments. Children may receive checkups, immunizations and other preventive care. In addition to gynecological care, women may make appointments for pre-pregnancy checkups, ultrasounds and other prenatal services.
