|"Shaw Living" Primary Care|
Our focus is healthcare for women. We see patients through virtually every phase of life: from adolescence, through the re-productive years and childbirth, and into menopause and beyond. OB-Gyns go to great lengths to earn our patients’ trust, and we value a strong doctor-patient relationship --- one that is built over many years.
Now beginning its fifth decade of service, The Shaw Center for Women’s Health is meeting the increasing challenges in today’s healthcare environment with technology, expanded hours and services, wellness programs, and new providers. With seven board- certified physicians, three certified nurse midwives, a nurse practitioner, a certified dietician and a licensed clinical social worker leading a staff of 30 medical professionals…..The Shaw Center is launching a new contemporary practice model to become the patient-centered medical home for women.
The patient-centered medical home is a nationally accredited quality model of care provided by physician practices that seeks to strengthen the physician-patient relationship by replacing episodic care based on illnesses and patient complaints with coordinated care and a long-term health and healing relationship. The annual well-woman appointment culture in a traditional ob/gyn office is a natural vehicle for launching a medical home practice model. Health and wellness is best accomplished where each patient has an on-going relationship with a personal physician, leading a team that takes collective responsibility for patient care. The medical home practice model also emphasizes enhanced care through open scheduling with expanded hours and increased communication between patients, physicians, and practice staff. We know that women are the primary caregivers in their families…but we often neglect ourselves.
The Shaw Team mission has always been to provide compassionate, comprehensive, and contemporary care for women at each stage of life. We have re-designed and re-defined our practice model in order to more successfully carry out that mission. We extend an invitation to the women of the region to choose Shaw as their medical home…. You take care of everyone else……let us take care of you.”
