UW Medicine offers holistic healthcare services to women across the continuum from adolescence through late adulthood. UW Medicine provides wellness and preventive services as well as care for normal to high-risk pregnancies, and breast, gynecologic and pelvic health. Our experts care for women with complicated medical conditions (such as reproductive/infertility and gynecologic oncology) that may require minimally invasive procedures or comprehensive surgical care. In addition, UW Medicine is prepared to care for infants requiring special or intensive care services within our three Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs). Our level 3 and level 4 NICUs provide the latest therapies for infants born preterm or those who require highly skilled care. Our physicians are researchers who are making medical discoveries that are improving the lives of women and infants throughout the world.
