At CRMC, we provide high quality health care services to women at all stages of life. In the Geeta Sandhu Women’s Health Services Unit, knowledgeable staff welcomes women anticipating the arrival of a newborn baby as well as women recovering from surgery. Our rooms are designed for comfort with the needs of women in mind. Care is provided by specially trained, experienced staff.
Our medical imaging department has state-of-the-art equipment to meet the special needs of women: ultrasound with fetal 3D/4D, mammography and bone density testing. We are prepared to provide comprehensive healthcare to women of all ages in collaboration with our fine team of staff and physicians.
Women’s services include:
- Childbirth education
- Cesarean section
- Postpartum support
- 3D/4D ultrasound
- Digital mammography
- Osteoporosis screening
- Tubal ligation
- Bladder lift
CRMC has the latest technology for mammograms. This new technology allows us to provide better quality images that can be manipulated and viewed immediately. This is a screening and diagnostic tool recommended for all women for early detection of breast cancer. Discuss the need for this test with your physician.
Osteoporosis can be a disabling disease for women. CRMC offers the best technology for screening: Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) can determine early stages of bone loss associated with osteoporosis. This disease causes bone density to decrease, making bones brittle and prone to fracture.
CRMC offers female patients a form of permanent birth control-Tubal Ligation. With highly trained staff this process is usually performed in an inpatient or outpatient department and is usually performed endoscopically. An endoscopic procedure allows a minimally invasive intervention which in turn has a shorter recovery time.
At CRMC, we acknowledge that having a hysterectomy can be a very stressful time in your life. Our team only performs hysterectomies if all avenues of healthcare have been exhausted and the problem persists. With a hysterectomy the recovery time usually is around 4 to 6 weeks.
Female bladder control problems and urinary incontinence (bladder leakage) is one of the most common problems affecting aging women. While pelvic floor exercise (such as Kegel exercises) and certain medications can be of some help, only surgery can secure a long lasting favorable result. Here at CRMC, we have the latest advance in tension-free bladder slings performed by our highly trained surgeons. Our approach is a less invasive procedure and eliminates potential complications.
Fetal Sex Ultrasound & 3D/4D Ultrasound
One of the biggest questions every new mother asks is “Will I have a boy or girl?” CRMC offers a fetal sex ultrasound at around 18-22 weeks of pregnancy. The fetal sex ultrasound does not require a doctors order, but we do ask that the fee for the procedure be paid prior to the ultrasound taking place. Call 620-252-1523 to schedule your fetal sex ultrasound today!
High 5 for Mom and Baby
The High 5 program — initiated, funded, and provided at no charge to Kansas hospitals by the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund — is founded on key hospital practices crucial for a successful breastfeeding experience. High 5 for Mom & Baby was developed by the Hutchinson-based Health Fund in conjunction with the Kansas Breastfeeding Workgroup.
Of the 60 hospitals and birth centers around the state having made a commitment to the High 5 program, Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is the eleventh to qualify for the recognition.
