Joining USWHA is a key step in the advance of women's healthcare.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Institute for Women’s Health, the largest OB/GYN in South Texas, recently obtained membership to the US Women’s Health Alliance (USWHA), making it the only practice in the region, and one of three in the entire state of Texas, to join.
USWHA is a national alliance of many of the largest and most prominent healthcare groups across the Unites States that collaborate to improve women’s healthcare. USWHA members work together to achieve superior patient care and advocacy that are not possible individually.
“We are proud to now be a partner in an alliance with the mission of providing the highest quality of care to women on a national level,” said Mike Koroscik, CEO of Institute for Women’s Health. “Joining USWHA is a key step in the advance of women’s healthcare, and we look forward to contributing to this collaboration and advancing the field together.”
As a member of USWHA, Institute for Women’s Health has greater access to pooled resources and new developments in women’s healthcare. Most importantly, the prestigious recognition allows them to be a part of a national effort to ensure all women are receiving exceptional, accessible and affordable care.
USWHA currently has 17 member groups across the nation with hundreds of medical offices employing 800 physicians to provide care to more than 5 million women.
The USWHA partnership underscores a commitment by Institute for Women’s Health to be a leading information source on women’s health, added Koroscik. The institute’s medical experts educate the public through health fairs, a regular television segment, Girl Talk, and physician blogs. Its Los Luchadores 5K Run + Walk on Oct. 11 will benefit pregnant teen moms.
