Maintaining breast health should play a role in every woman’s regular healthcare routine. Ascension Seton offers a number of services dedicated to addressing common concerns about breast health, including regular mammograms. Screening, detection and a prompt, accurate diagnosis are all critical in helping women receive early treatment for breast cancer. Ascension Seton also promotes breast health awareness and education about steps women can take on their own at home, such as breast self-exams.
Women’s risks of heart disease are typically underestimated and the associated symptoms are often misunderstood. Our cardiac care services include self-referral screening like Heart Healthy CT scans, as well as actively promoting better education about heart health and cardiac disease specifically in women.
Healthy Lifestyle Resources
To provide women with the resources and support they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Ascension Seton created the Ignite Women’s Health Program, which gives women the opportunity to challenge their body, rejuvenate their spirit and ignite their mind. With services ranging from breast health and cardiac care to self-defense and fitness classes, the Ignite Women’s Health Program covers a variety of women’s healthcare concerns in a supportive environment.
Another common health concern for women is obstetric and gynecological care, including prenatal care as well as obstetric and gynecologic surgical procedures. OB/GYN care from Ascension Seton includes regular wellness exams, PAP smears, pelvic exams, urogynecological surgery and menopause management.
