Helping Women and Children thrive during one of the most important times in the life of their family.

Inpatient Care & Nursing Units

Women's Health

In order to help them better prepare for their stay, the King Unit Women’s Health Committee has developed an informational program for women with a scheduled gynecological procedure at Elliot Hospital.
Patients will learn:
               How to prepare themselves before surgery
               What to expect in the first 24 hours after surgery
               Pain Management
               What potential needs may occur after discharge from the hospital

Group discussions will provide an opportunity to ask questions, discuss issues, address concerns, and relieve anxieties, as well as help women to better prepare for their surgery and understand their stay on King Unit. Patients are encouraged to bring a family member or support person to this meeting.

Classes are held on the second Monday and third Thursday of every month from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM in Conference Room B (located on the ground floor of the hospital). Please follow signs from the main lobby

         Jul 12 & 15

        Sep 13 & 16
