BRANSON, Mo. – One in three women suffer from a pelvic floor disorder such as postpartum muscle weakness, urinary incontinence, painful intercourse and pelvic pressure. These conditions can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. There is good news though – help is available and it’s close to home.
The Women’s Center at Cox Medical Center Branson has expanded to add additional services, including a new pelvic wellness program.
“Pelvic health disorders affect millions of women, yet there is a huge gap in care,” said Kelli Gosch, MSN, women’s health care nurse practitioner. “Having a pelvic wellness program right here in Branson will make it easier for women to get the help they deserve.”
The newly expanded Women’s Center has also added well-woman preventative and gynecologic care as well as lactation support and education. These new services are in addition to the services they’ve provided for years: mammography, ultrasound and bone density.
“We now have complete women’s health in one beautiful location designed for the care and comfort of women,” said Women’s Center Director Tracey Williams, MSN, certified family nurse practitioner. “With just one call, multiple services can be coordinated during one appointment time in one convenient location. We’ve also added some great special touches, including luxurious waffle robes and decadent chocolate treats for our patients.”
The expansion and additional services were made possible through a generous gift from Skaggs Foundation.
The community is invited to tour the newly expanded Women’s Center, learn about the exciting new services available, meet the center’s team of experts, and enjoy light refreshments during an open house Friday, March 4. The open house will be held from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Women’s Center, suite 408, CoxHealth Outpatient Center, 525 Branson Landing Blvd.
