Through SSM Health St. Mary’s and the Rosetta Boyce Kyles Women’s Pavilion, we provide a full range of services and a comprehensive approach to women’s health care. In addition, SSM Health St. Mary’s serves as the clinical site for St. Louis University, which provides our patients with access to OB/GYN specialists, such Dr. Xynos, who are recognized as experts in their field. Our comprehensive women’s health services include, but are not limited to the following:
Maternal care – Specifically, as a tertiary perinatal center, SSM Health St. Mary’s is recognized as a leader in providing obstetrical care to women with high risk conditions during pregnancy. As a community hospital, we also provide a high touch approach to maternity care, including access to midwifery services, which allow women to design the birth experience that best meets their expectations.
Gynecologic services - Including specialization in gynecologic cancers, diagnosis and treatment for pelvic pain, vulvar problems, and other conditions unique to women.
Breast care services - Ranging from screening mammography to diagnosis and treatment of complex breast disease.
Behavioral health - Including our Mom’s line, which provides telephonic support and referral for women experiencing post-partum adjustment concerns; and even services for mothers-to-be who are addicted to opioid drugs (WISH Center). The WISH Center is the only program of its kind in the region with a team of multidisciplinary providers including those in maternal fetal medicine specialists, specially trained nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, nurse coordinators and a dedicated obstetrics pharmacist. The team coordinates with behavioral medicine therapists.
