DVCH Opens New Women's Health Center

This week, Delaware Valley Community Health, Inc. (DVCH)   celebrated the Grand Opening of its new Maria de los Santos Women's Health Center. The new center, located in a new shopping plaza across the street from the main Maria de los Santos Health Center (MDLS) was built to expand MDLS' current OB/GYN services, thereby accommodating the growing need in the area where over half of the women giving birth do not receive prenatal care in the first trimester of their pregnancies. The expanded facilities will allow more patients to be seen, while shortening appointment wait times from weeks to just days for the women of North Philadelphia. The new Women's Health Center has 14 exam rooms, 2 procedure rooms, English and Spanish-speaking providers, and a behavioral health specialist. A number of new programs will also be offered, including prenatal classes, new moms' orientation and baby safety classes. Congratulations to CEO Patti Deitch and the DVCH team!
