ADVANCING WOMEN’S HEALTHCARE
Imagine a future in which every doctor who cares for you understands your unique female biology and values your preferences.
Imagine a future in which health care providers work in teams and share information with each other -- and you -- via the internet.
Imagine a brand new state of the art hospital in San Francisco devoted entirely to providing women a lifetime of reproductive health, where a woman can have a baby in a birthing center, receive the latest in breast cancer care, uterine fibroid treatment or incontinence all in a woman-centered environment.
That future is closer than you think thanks to the vision of lifelong women's healthcare advocate and expert Dr. Nancy Milliken. The Women's Specialty Hospital is part of a new $1.6 billion UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay that broke ground in October 2010.
