Welcome to the Women’s Health Department at Flushing Hospital Medical Center.

Our hospital was established in 1884 and has been providing high-quality healthcare to the community for over 135 years.

Throughout the years, the Women’s Health Department has grown to meet the needs of the women and families we serve. Our commitment to upholding the highest standards of patient care and our pursuit of excellence has earned our hospital national recognition and most notably the trust of our community.

Our department proudly supports sexual and reproductive justice by empowering our patients with the resources needed to make healthy decisions about their bodies, sexuality and reproduction. We strictly follow the NYC Standards for Respectful Care at Birth which entitles all patients the right to respectful, safe and quality care during their birthing experience.

Flushing Hospital’s Women’s Health Department offers comprehensive, multi-disciplinary, and culturally sensitive care. Our services are provided by a highly skilled team of experts who specialize in all aspects of women’s health including but not limited to obstetrics and gynecology, maternal-fetal medicine, family planning, gynecologic surgery, and gynecologic oncology.

We take great pride in the expertise of our specialists, as well as our efficacy in utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge technology, and the latest treatments to achieve positive outcomes. Our Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers comprehensive and multi-disciplinary care to patients with gynecologic malignancies. Treatment options include surgery (robotic and traditional), chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The division is a member of the New York Gynecologic Oncology Group and thereby is able to use the most up-to-date treatment and clinical trials available.

Our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division has the most up-to-date equipment for the evaluation of mother and fetus. This is especially important in the management of high-risk pregnancies, which comprise 25% of deliveries.

Flushing Hospital is the birthing place of choice for many families in our community. We successfully deliver thousands of newborns every year.

When it’s time to deliver your baby, our recently renovated New Beginnings Mother-Baby Unit offers spacious, modern, private rooms to patients. Each beautifully designed suite provides a relaxing environment for mothers and babies to bond while receiving advanced postpartum care. Amenities include private, ADA-compliant bathrooms with showers, sleeper beds to accommodate a designated support person’s overnight stay as well as an electronic information board and bedside tablet for mothers. Our enhanced air circulation system gives all rooms the capability to provide negative pressure. This feature is extremely important for patient safety, especially during these times.

In addition to clinical care, our Women’s Health Center offers many other services to expectant families, including:
