Women's Health Services
2013 Community Health Services Reports

Programs through Women’s Health Services at Scottsdale Healthcare provide a place for women of any age to find the support and care that is unique to their needs. From women of childbearing age to seniors enjoying their retirement, Women’s Health Services helps extend a woman’s quality of life.

More than 1,330 women participated in the Moms on the Move (M.O.M.) program that provides a setting for social interaction, support and practical information for new mothers. In addition, 35 first-time mothers participated in Moms Version 4.0. Designed to support mothers over the age of 39, the program addresses some of the unique challenges older mothers may experience.

Because women have a higher risk for osteoporosis and heart disease, Scottsdale Healthcare conducted 91 bone density screenings for osteoporosis and 525 heart screenings in 2013.

Personalized heart screenings estimate the 10-year risk of having a heart attack based on fasting cholesterol profile, fasting glucose level, blood pressure, waist circumference and body mass index.

Women diagnosed with osteoporosis and heart disease can take advantage of support groups that provide a forum for women to learn how to have active lives while living with these conditions.

Scottsdale Healthcare holds regular educational programs and events led by our physicians and other health providers, covering a wide range of topics on health conditions unique to women.
