Westlake Hospital, West Suburban Medical Center, and the River Forest Medical Campus, are proud to offer a comprehensive women's health network, Just for Women. By combining and coordinating our services, doctors, and technology, we are able to deliver an entire continuum of quality care just for women.

Comprehensive Women's Health Care

We believe that health and wellness are a way of life. It is always scary when you or a loved one becomes ill, but our women's health doctors in the western suburbs are skilled at diagnosing and treating diseases like breast or ovarian cancer using the latest techniques and treatments. We will see you through every step of the process – from diagnosis to recovery – because we understand what you're going through and know what it takes to make you better.

But we want to do more than just treat you when you're ill; we want to create a lasting relationship so we can provide education and preventative care during every phase of your life. Learn more about your options for ongoing care and find the physician that is right for you.

Let us provide you with the best resources.

The women's health experts at our community hospitals are committed to providing you with the most expansive women's health services possible, all without sacrificing the comfort of a personal patient-doctor relationship. We understand the special needs that women have at different times in their lives. From your annual gynecological check-ups to delivering your baby to scheduling a mammogram, we can help you take the right steps to achieve health for life.
