Women's History Month
March is Women's History Month. Women Veterans have a long and distinguished history of serving our country. There are more than two million women Veterans, and women are the fastest growing group in the Veteran population.
At Hines, we have about 3,800 female Veterans enrolled for care, and of that, about 3,000 actively use our services. Hines Women's Health Clinic is unique in that we can provide the bulk of services our women need in one location. Gender-specific care is extraordinarily important, so we assign only Designated Women's Health Providers (DWHPs) to administer primary care in our clinic.
At Hines and our six community clinics, we have more than 30 DWHPs to ensure that women are receiving timely, high-quality care. We also provide gynecological care, mental health, social work, pharmacological consults, nutrition services, and peer support. Hines has a mammography care contract with Loyola University Medical Center to help streamline the process of receiving care related to breast health in the community and we provide maternity care coordination for the growing population of Veterans of child-bearing age.
The Women's Health Clinic is a team of people dedicated to examining practices throughout the hospital that may impact care triggering for our patients who have experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST). As our population of women Veterans continues to grow, it is imperative that we continue working with our community partners to ensure women have access to all the care they need.
Hines VA is proud to salute women Veterans for their accomplishments and contributions to the United States military and our community.
