Bingham's Health Services Exclusively for Women

Healthy in your 50s

June 15, 2015 -- We recognize that women’s health is far from a one-size-fits-all, which is why we created Bingham Memorial Women’s Center. We pride ourselves on the premier healthcare services we offer to the women of our community.

Our Caring OB/GYNs

We have assembled a dynamic team of both female and male OB/GYNs. Our caring team provides the highest standard of healthcare for women at every stage of life and promote physical and emotional well-being. They empower women to maintain good health, participate in their care, address healthcare concerns, and bring new life into the world.

Our OB/GYNs understand the challenges women face in today’s society as caregivers and family providers. Their goal is to provide women with the tools they need to make smart choices that will positively impact the rest of their lives. The foundation of our women’s healthcare center is rooted in the relationships our physicians have with women, discussing ongoing concerns of reproductive health—from puberty to menopause.

Services Offered

While fertility, family planning, pregnancy and childbirth are always at the forefront of our women’s center, our team also places a priority on the importance of gynecological health. They provide solutions to health concerns affecting women, such as:

  • Breast health (including breast cancer)
  • Emotional well-being
  • Gynecologic cancers
  • Gynecological pain
  • Heart disease
  • Hormone therapy
  • Osteoporosis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Weight-Loss

Staying Active

It’s important for all women to stay active, eat healthy, get enough sleep, manage stress, avoid unhealthy activities, and visit a doctor for yearly checkups. The bottom line is to listen to your body. If you feel something is wrong, get it checked out. Chances are, it’s nothing. But at least you’ll have peace of mind. And that’s priceless. It’s never too early or late to work toward being your healthiest you.

The extraordinary OB/GYNs at Bingham Memorial Women’s Center are here for the women of southeastern Idaho, and care for the special needs of women in a compassionate manner you won’t find anywhere else.
