The Women's Health Center at WellStar WGMC

The average woman spends about 76 minutes getting ready in the morning between showering, hair styling, make-up, and trying on different combinations of clothes. If women dedicated at least half that time toward getting their regular health screenings, they could take an important step toward not only protecting their health but potentially saving their lives.

Located in a beautiful Georgian-style home adjacent to the WellStar West Georgia Medical Center campus on Vernon Road, the Women’s Health Center at WGMC provides a full range of testing and diagnostic procedures in a soothing, spa-like environment. Designed with women’s health care needs, comfort, and convenience in mind, the Center is equipped with soft lighting, luxurious spa robes, roomy private changing areas, a coffee bar, and other special touches to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

The 8,000 square foot facility focuses not only on women’s health, but on improving the health of all residents in the WGMC service area.

Women are the primary health-care decision makers in their families,”  WGMC President Jerry Fulks said. “By empowering women to maintain good health and participate in their own care, we can help women – and, through them, their families - become healthy and stay healthy throughout their lives."

One of the Women’s Health Center’s objectives is to educate women about the benefits of early detection and prevention. Providing the latest in imaging technology, the Center’s radiologist and highly-trained and caring staff arm women and their physicians with the information they need to make decisions about their care.
