Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women's Health

Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women's Health

For 185 years, we have provided excellence in patient care, education, and clinical / basic science research. We have a rich history.  Although the specialty of obstetrics, gynecology and its subspecialties have transitioned throughout the years, our department still follows its original mission and remains committed to providing comprehensive gynecologic and obstetric care, education and research.  Throughout this time, we have continued to provide the best care offered for the women of Louisville and surrounding areas.

Paying It Forward Today for Tomorrow’s Medicine

It is the mission of the faculty and staff at Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women’s Health to provide comprehensive care in a compassionate manner for both patients and their families. We are dedicated to providing services for normal and high risk births, non-invasive treatments for the young and elderly, and give hope to those who feel incapable of ever having a family of their own.   All of this care is given with high ethical and moral standards.

Our department strives for recognition as an institution of excellence. This includes hands-on patient care; as well as, priding ourselves on advocating and promoting advancements in women’s healthcare. This is achieved by providing excellence in education and research, thus paying it forward to our students to continue providing the highest quality care possible.
