How the Regional Healthcare System Helps Women Prioritize Their Health

With Williamson Health

Women play a vital role in their families’ healthcare decisions, making about eighty percent of all household healthcare choices, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Sometimes, though, women can overlook their own needs while they’re taking care of everyone else.
“We are proud to support women in our community and the surrounding region with exceptional care for every aspect of their lives,” said Michele Simpson, Director of Marketing and Communications for Williamson Health. “From routine screenings to bringing a baby into the world to treating serious conditions, we seek to provide exceptional care for every aspect of a woman’s life.”


The healthcare system was recently recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Women’s Services, Comprehensive Breast Care, Mammogram Imaging, Obstetrics, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Heart Care and Emergency Care by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare.

Here’s how Williamson Health is making it easy or women to take care of themselves:


Primary Care

“Regular visits to your primary care physician, especially as women age, is incredibly important,” Simpson said. Regular visits help physicians monitor important health indicators such as blood pressure, heart rate, and weight as well as manage chronic conditions. More than twenty primary care physicians call Williamson Health Medical Group home, providing quality care in the county.
Obstetrics and Gynecology
For women who are pregnant or considering pregnancy, Williamson Medical Center is home to nationally recognized obstetrics (OB) and neonatal intensive care (NICU) as well as maternal care from a compassionate and talented team of caregivers. Recent upgrades to the OB unit include beautiful, more spacious new rooms for Labor and Delivery and Postpartum Recovery.
Our two OB/GYN practices, Vanderbilt Franklin Women’s Center and Women’s Group of Franklin, also help keep women healthy, offering important annual screenings, such as cervical cancer screenings, and routine obstetrics and gynecological care.

Urogynecology and Pelvic Health

Women experiencing complicated gynecological issues, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, urinary or fecal incontinence, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and sexual health issues can trust the providers at Williamson Health Urogynecology and Pelvic Health.
“At Williamson Health Urogynecology and Pelvic Health, our providers truly seek to meet patients where they are and find the best treatment plan for each person,” Simpson said. “No matter what pelvic issue you’re dealing with, they seek to listen and explore all of the options available to find the one that works best for your life.”

Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center

For nine years running, Williamson Health’s Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center has been named one of America’s best breast health centers. Awarded by the Women’s Choice Award®,  the America’s Best Hospitals for Comprehensive Breast Care signifies that Williamson Health is among the top U.S. hospitals offering breast care services.


“The practitioners at the Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center strive to offer high-level expertise, personalized patient care and genuine empathy in every single interaction,” Simpson said. “They understand the shock and fear of a breast cancer diagnosis, and our breast health team walks with patients to navigate from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.”
Patients also have convenient access to the Williamson Health Outpatient Imaging Center, allowing for rapid turnaround times that help to reduce anxiety and expedite treatment plans whatever the diagnosis.
