Comprehensive Women's Health opening multi-million dollar center in Gainesville
North Florida Women's Physicians has been a private practice located in the Women's Center at North Florida Regional Medical Center for 27 years. Now they are getting a new location and a new name.
Comprehensive Women's Health will be a 2-story, state-of-the-art building, with a lot more space and even a community classroom to hold meetings and classes for patients.
"We've outgrown our space here at our current facility and we've been working for over 2 1/2 years to design and develop a space that will accommodate our patients and things we can bring to the community," OBGYN Dr. Kelly Chamberlain said.
Now they are in separate suites on the 5th floor of the North Florida Regional Medical Center, but soon the entire practice will be all together.
"We will have a more private area for patient intake and history taking which i think is a big deal... We just think they will appreciate all the new services that we'll be able to provide," OBGYN Dr. Jill Delker said.
Right next door, they're also building a freestanding birth center, which will give patients the opportunity to be in a home-like setting with certified nurses.
"Birth centers are unique because they allow women to have a lot of freedom in movement, freedom to eat and drink during labor and birth in whatever position they desire or even in the water if they want that," Mid-Wife nurse Amanda Husband said. "We'll have three beautiful rooms with tubs to offer water birth, water labor."
Staff at Comprehensive Women's Health said they want to thank all of their patients because without them they wouldn't be doing this.
The center will be opening in the Fall 2018 and located at 724 NW 43rd St.
