What we do

The Children and Women’s Health Program provides primary, secondary, and tertiary care to children and women through pediatric and women’s health specialty clinics, health promotion and education, and emergency and critical care. The dedicated staff and physicians provide high quality, client and family-centred care to patients and families.

Our program has approximately 800 health-care professionals and dozens of volunteers who provide care and services to tens of thousands of children and women per year.

Provincial scope

Gynecology and obstetrics services

  • Health clinics are offered on second (2nd) floor of the Health Sciences Centre.
  • Perioperative services are provided for women requiring surgery.
  • To ensure children and women receive care close to their home community, health-care professionals offer primary and secondary services through travelling clinics and virtual care.

Child and family-centred care

We value the involvement of our clients and  families in making critical decisions for their health. We strive to work with clients and their families in developing, monitoring and evaluating services to meet their needs.
