Care for Women of All Ages

The Women’s Health Department at New Bedford Community Health provides high-quality, sensitive, confidential care to a diverse community of female patients across the gender spectrum, from adolescence to advanced age.

Our Women’s Health team is, like all our medical teams, fully integrated with behavioral health providers and social workers available to support you. We recognize that gynecological health, family planning, pregnancy, and parenting are different experiences for everyone. We provide confidential services to women and teens. All services are provided by licensed physicians, nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, nurses, and a professionally-trained counseling staff. Your care team will work closely with you to make sure you understand everything about your medical needs, and that you are fully informed of all treatment options and potential outcomes. We will always make decisions with you, never for you.
