It’s been months in the making; an effort of careful planning, close supervision, and genuine devotion.
It’s one of the most exciting and innovative programs in the Willis-Knighton Health System.
It’s the Center for Women’s Health, an entire facility on the campus of Willis-Knighton South that is dedicated to women’s healthc are – featuring treatment, maintenance, and educational programs.
This beautiful three-story facility encompasses 74,000 square feet, housing education facilities, labor and delivery rooms, a fully-equipped and staffed neonatal intensive care unity, post-partum rooms, and a newborn nursery. It is furnished with all-new state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment.
Its tall, airy atrium window brings natural light to the lobby, waiting areas and nursery. Special sky-lighting enhances the post-partum area. Every effort has been made to create an attractive as well as highly functional environment.
The Comforts of Family and Home
The atmosphere of a luxury hotel fills the second floor’s maternity area, where mothers can experience labor, delivery and recovery in a single, family-accessible room. warm, pleasant surroundins and comforts like a jacuzzi in each room’s bath are common throughout; the amenities of home are amply provided.
A children’s area is located in the Center, to provide temporary childcare while parents attend educational programs or take exercise classes. Also, parents are able to learn about child development by observing their children through a two-way mirror.
Diagnostics, Treatment and Exercise
Screenings and tests for mammography, ultrasound, diabetes, osteoporosits, and cholesterol are performed at the Center. There are several consultation rooms for support professionals such as nurses, educators, dietitians, exercise physiologists, and social workers; plus large conference rooms for educational programs and support group meetings.
The aerobics room is equipped with a hardwood floor and shock-absorbing foundation, providing a facility for the directed classes for women of all ages. A private dressing area and locker space are adjacent to the workout room. There are special classes designed for women who are beginning or have just begun a personal exercise program, for pregnant women and women who have recently had a baby.
An Educational Resource
In addition, a resource library contains books, magazines, research articles and audiovisual equipment for self-study and reference to a growing array of information about women’s health. There’s also a gift shop and vending area for the convenience of visitors.
Classes and community programs which have already begun under the banner of the Center now have a convenient, well-equipped home. The Center itself is conveniently located adjacent to the Willis-Knighton South hospital. In fact,the majority of OB/GYN physicians associated with WK keep office within walking distance of the Center for Women’s Health.
We believe the Center for Women’s Health will grow to be an extremely valuable asset for women – and their families – in this region. Call (318) 632-5255 for more information about the Center and its programs.
