Women’s Nurse Navigator Services
Our women’s nurse navigator can help coordinate your care if you have complications or concerns. She is available before, during and after hospitalization. Along with your doctor, she can help you deal with issues such as preterm labor and high-risk pregnancy, and she can connect you with community resources that might be beneficial. Talk to your doctor to learn more.
A four-story section of Wesley is the Women’s Hospital, dedicated to the care of women only. All the rooms are private. Several floors are for pregnancy and maternity care.
The fourth floor is dedicated to inpatients who require hospitalization before the birth of their infant, those who have had gynecological or breast surgery, including cancer surgery. The nursing staff on this unit have won the Qualilty of Life Award, given by the Wichita Medical Research and Education Foundation, for their compassionate care.
Diagnosis and treatment
Wesley’s advanced imaging and laboratory facilities provide mammograms, tests for osteoporosis, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, cancers of the breast and reproductive organs, and many other conditions women may have.
Whether the condition is a harmless lump in the breast or advanced ovarian cancer, Wesley has the technology and expertise to provide state-of-the-art treatment. Advanced treatment options include:
- Trilogy: the world’s most advanced radiosurgery treatment for cancer
- Mammosite: breast cancer radiation therapy which minimizes radiation to healthy tissue and achieves better cosmetic results
- Laparoscopic surgery: surgeons operate using scopes inserted through very small incisions, resulting in faster healing and minimal scarring
- da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Wesley believes treatment should consider patients’ emotional and self-image needs, pain relief, and sensitivity to the time constraints and responsibilities women have to their families and their employment.
