Spirit of Women At Monmouth Medical Center
Monmouth Medical Center Joins 'Spirit of Women'
Partnership Highlights Valuable Services For Women
Monmouth Medical Center has joined forces with Spirit of Women™, an elite coalition of American hospitals and health care providers that ascribes to high standards of excellence in women’s health, education, and community outreach.
Monmouth is the only hospital in Monmouth County designated as a Spirit of Women hospital.
“This exciting program will help solidify Monmouth Medical Center as the regional leader in women’s health,” says Frank J. Vozos, M.D., FACS, president and chief executive officer of Monmouth. “Our goal is to improve the health of women and their families through innovative, educational community outreach.”
Dr. Vozos notes that the program, especially designed to meet women’s needs, highlights critical areas, including heart disease – the No. 1 killer of women – as well as osteoporosis, breast health, cancer, geriatric health, sleep disorders, pregnancy, gynecological health, diabetes, weight management and more. He also points out that because women make up to 85 percent of household health care decisions, the educational and motivational Spirit of Women efforts are expected to positively impact the well-being of the entire family and community as a whole.
Through Spirit of Women, Monmouth Medical Centers is also participating in HeartCaring®, a specialty program that was developed in partnership with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. The hospital recently hosted a Day of Dance & Go Red for Women Day Health Fair, Monmouth Medical Center’s kick-off event for Spirit of Women held February 15 at the Monmouth Mall in Eatontown.
