Health is a primary concern for women in all aspects and stages of their lives. As part of the state's only academic medical center, University of Mississippi Medical Center provides comprehensive and compassionate medical care each step of the way.
University Women's Care specialists are ready to address the full scope of female medical issues, ranging from a teenage girl's first visit to her gynecologist to an older woman's expectations after menopause. Pregnancy, breast and gynecologic cancer, heart health, birth control, mental health, fitness and more are all within the scope of expertise offered by professionals at University Physicians - Grants Ferry clinics.
For those seeking specialized care, University Women's Care offers the convenience and comfort of innovative treatments and the latest technologies at University Physicians - Women's Specialty Care at Mirror Lake.

The UMMC continuum of care is extended at Wiser Hospital for Women & Infants, a facility devoted to women as well as their newborns. Services include the University Center for Fetal Medicine, Women's Urgent Care Center, neonatal intensive care unit, labor and delivery, newborn nursery, postpartum unit and women's surgical suites.
A team of registered nurses and dietitians provide delivered patients with maternal and infant care and assist with breastfeeding problems. We also feature the state's only hospital-based enrollment program for mothers and babies who qualify for Women, Infant and Children (WIC) supplements.
We also are the only hospital in the state to have certified Lamaze instructors leading our childbirth classes. Our classes at Wiser Hospital and UP - Grants Ferry teach pregnant women what to expect during the birthing process. Each of the scheduled classes buildings on the previous class so we encourage moms-to-be and their support person to attend all classes to get the full benefit. Topics include labor and delivery, relaxation techniques, infant feeding/breastfeeding and much more.
