All about Spirit of Women

DID YOU KNOW?

That Fremont Health Medical Center is a member of Spirit of Women®, an elite coalition of American hospitals and healthcare providers that ascribe to high standards of excellence in women's health, education, and community outreach?

This exciting program promotes Fremont Health as a regional leader in women's health education and community outreach for women and their families.

WHAT IS SPIRIT OF WOMEN?

The success of Spirit of Women lies in the synergy between local and regional hospitals, national corporations, and media partners that is replicated in communities across the country leveraging strength in numbers and common goals.

The Spirit of Women national brand is anchored by media support such as Oprah Magazine, Good Housekeeping, and The Today Show. The Spirit of Women Hospital Network frequently works in cooperation with U.S. government health agencies such as The Office on Women's Health and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Spirit of Women also has the ability to leverage celebrities including Lisa Masterson, Christina Applegate, and Debbie Allen and their star power to spread the important health messages of the network and its partners.

Spirit of Women hospitals are committed to making good health easier and to help women and their families take ACTION that results in better health. Spirit of Women hospitals aspire to the highest standards in women's health outreach and clinical care. Spirit hospitals also uphold Seven Standards for Excellence in Women's Health that guarantee that the experience at a Spirit hospital will be sensitive and customized to individual healthcare needs.

WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLE OF SPIRIT OF WOMEN ACTIVITIES?

Fremont Health Medical Center chooses from a wide variety of Spirit of Women programs that may include major educational programs with nationally-recognized speakers, exciting community wellness events, membership programs, support groups, health and other creative outreach activities.

WHY FOCUS ON WOMEN?

Fremont Health Medical Center supports the ongoing celebration of women's health through Spirit of Women because we believe that knowledge and community support are the keys to wellness. Women make nearly 80% of all healthcare decisions for their families, and we want those decisions to include Fremont Health.
