New Women’s Health Network emphasizes wellness

WHNWomenCentral New York women of all ages can focus on taking care of themselves by joining the Upstate Women’s Health Network. (Listen to a HealthLink on Air radio interview about the network.)

The network provides women with a connection to an academic medical center in their quest to stay healthy. This includes the many specialties that women and their families may need, plus a number of educational resources to help support women taking charge of their health. Member services include access to a nurse-staffed phone line to answer health questions, early notification of seminars on health topics, small group Q&A sessions with health care providers, and the chance to participate in fun activities related to healthy living and wellness.

For physicians, the network provides one phone call access to a host of Upstate specialty physicians, services and affiliated practices for their female patients. Women’s Health Network providers are committed to timely appointment scheduling, communication with the referring physician, and individually-tailored clinical care for patients. Currently the network offers: breast care, cancer care, geriatric care, obstetrics and gynecology and urogynecology, rehabilitative therapies, urgent and after hours care, urological services, women’s bone and joint health and women’s imaging. Services soon to be added include cardiovascular services, gastroenterology, pulmonology/critical care and sleep, nephrology, rheumatology and many surgical specialties.

Membership is simple and free. Just call 315-464-2756 for details, or visit www.upstate.edu/women.
