The Division of Women's Health at UW Medical Center, the Division of Women's Health at Harborview Medical Center, and the Division of Women's Health at VA Puget Sound provide primary and specialty Obstetrics and Gynecology care for women. 

Combined, we have 19 full-time and part-time faculty providing women's healthcare across 10 ambulatory, and four hospital sites.

Our faculty provide a large proportion of the clinical volume in the OB/GYN department. 

Our Mission

We promote excellence in Women's Health through:

  • Providing compassionate and state-of-the-art comprehensive obstetric and gynecologic care.

  • Maximizing our patients' experience through exceptional professional conduct and continual improvement of our clinic and hospital processes.

  • Serving as the premier referral center for complicated gynecology in the greater Northwest region.

  • Advancing knowledge and expertise within our field in research and education.

  • Becoming national leaders in obstetrics and gynecologic education and furthering the education of our University of Washington residents and medical students.

What we do

Clinical Care

Women's Health Group

We care for patients at multiple clinical sites across the Seattle area, serving a diverse female population that ranges from pediatric/adolescent patients at Seattle Children's Hospital (SCH) and cancer patients at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), to the female veterans referred to the Seattle and Tacoma Veteran's Administration (VA) sites. 

We manage a wide range of general to complex gynecologic conditions, and serve as consultants to our primary care, pediatric, and oncology colleagues at various clinical sites.

We emphasize wellness and prevention, and encourage patients to become a partner in their health care.

In September 2019, we introduced the first TeleOB program in the Seattle area, designed to combine the convenience of telemedicine with our high-quality prenatal care.
