The Women’s Health Program provides inpatient and outpatient services for women in the two core areas of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Perinatal care is delivered at Women’s Hospital (HSC) and St. Boniface Hospital (SBH) in collaboration with Population and Public Health in each of the 12 community areas. Care is provided to families with diverse perinatal needs, including those who may experience complications during the perinatal period (e.g., antepartum inpatient monitoring, twins, fetal anomalies, etc).
Gynecological surgical services occur at the above sites as well as at the Grace Hospital, Seven Oaks General Hospital and Victoria General Hospital. Gynecological oncology services in a hospital setting is linked closely with Cancer Care Manitoba and is provided at the SBH and at HSC Women’s Hospital.
Ambulatory outpatient obstetrical and gynecological care is provided at HSC and SBH. Primary care with a focus on reproductive and sexual health occurs within the Ambulatory Care at both these sites. Laser surgery, colposcopy and other minor surgical procedures are also a part of the outpatient activity. Approximately, 70,000 outpatient visits occur at the two sites annually.
