Service Area Overview
Extraordinary care for women

At Northside Hospital, we believe that women are amazing. And different.
And in most ways, amazingly different when it comes to health care.

A woman’s wellness is determined by more than an annual physical. Her many parts can be complicated. All those parts deserve attention, expertise and understanding.

That’s where Northside Hospital’s state-of-the-art Women’s Centers come in.

Designed to care for a woman throughout her life --- from puberty and adulthood through childbirth, midlife, and beyond --- our Centers specialize in GYN, cancer care, and surgical services.

The Women’s Center on our Atlanta campus was the first, most comprehensive center focusing on women’s health and wellness in the southeast. Today, Northside is ranked in the top 5% of U.S. hospitals for GYN robotic surgical procedures. We’ve treated more cases of endometriosis by operative laparoscopy and robotics than any other hospital in Georgia. We handle every stage of a woman’s reproductive years – from preconception and pregnancy to labor, delivery, and postpartum. We are
proud to offer a variety of innovative services in our Breast Care Center and Breast Surgery Center.
