Personalized Care and Services Just for You
When it comes to health and wellness, women have unique needs that change throughout the course of their lives. So it stands to reason that you need health care services and resources designed specifically for you— whether you are 18 or 80 years of age.
At Lakeview Medical Center, our Women’s Health program includes advanced health services that encompass the entire spectrum of care, delivered by physicians and caring staff who understand the important gender differences in caring for women. Our leading-edge women’s health services include:
— The cardiac rehabilitation program at Lakeview Medical Center helps women recover from heart attacks, by-pass surgery, or other heart-related problems.

Lakeview Medical Center’s Health & Wellness Center
— Far more than your average fitness center, this comprehensive approach to fitness offers a safe, medically accepted way to reach wellness potential. It provides a supervised program for area women to improve their help and change their lives.
Breast and Bone Health
— Our advanced Women’s Imaging Department brings leading-edge services to area women such as digital mammography, breast ultrasound and bone density testing, along with procedures such as breast MRI and the area’s only breast stereotactic biopsy. Our fully digital facility allows images to be sent electronically to specialists and primary care physicians for fastest diagnosis and treatment.
A note on breast health: One in every eight women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Yet, more than 97 percent will survive the disease if it is detected early, when more treatment options are available.
