Women's Health Center
Physicians Regional Healthcare System understands that women have different health care needs than men, and the environment in which they receive care is sometimes as important as the care itself. So, we are leading the way in providing women with extraordinary experiences and solutions. With facilities designed specifically for women’s healthcare needs, and offering some of the most advanced tools and techniques available today, women are traveling to Physicians Regional from around the country for care.
The Women’s Center provides women with a unique brand of care that blends soothing, spa-level comfort and advanced medical technology.
In addition, Physicians Regional offers a wide array of gynecological and urogynecological procedures for women of all ages are available, as well as some of the most advanced diagnostic equipment, such as digital mammography and an MRI with breast coil, for enhanced accuracy in evaluating breast health.
AAGL Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology
Our two COEMIG designated surgeons:
Dennis Hidlebaugh, M.D.
Jorge Valle, M.D.
The surgery department at Physicians Regional–Collier Boulevard has been designated as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (COEMIG) by the AAGL, the leading association promoting minimally invasive gynecologic surgery throughout the world. Our hospital is the first in the state of Florida to be awarded the designation.
Focused on improving the safety and quality of gynecologic patient care and lowering the overall costs associated with successful treatment, the COEMIG program is designed to expand patient awareness of and access to minimally invasive gynecologic procedures performed by surgeons and facilities that have demonstrated excellence in these advanced techniques. The experience of the surgeons, the hospital’s technology and equipment, and patient outcomes are among the many qualifications considered for the designation.
Less-invasive gynecologic surgical methods reduce the need for prolonged hospitalization and reduce the risk of surgical complications, which can lead to re-admission. As part of the COEMIG program participating facilities will submit patient outcomes to a database that will track effectiveness of treatments.
