Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital has opened the Emory Women's Center on campus at 5673 Peachtree Dunwoody, Suite 700, in collaboration with Emory Clinic's Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics. Specialists from the Emory Clinic provide comprehensive care in one location including well-woman exams, prenatal care, minimally invasive gynecological surgery, menopause care, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and gynecologic cancer.
“We are excited to expand our practice to Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital and lead the creation of Emory Women's Center,” says Ira Horowitz, MD, SM, John D. Thompson Professor and Chairman of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics. “We look forward to enhancing access to our outstanding patient care, and we're especially delighted to join with our colleagues from other departments to provide a multidisciplinary team approach to our patients.”
Faculty members from the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics anchoring the Emory Women's Center at Emory Saint Joseph's include:
General obstetrician-gynecologists Suzanne Griffith, MD, and Mark Lachiewicz, MD, who provide routine women's health services and minimally invasive surgical options to patients. Pregnant patients will be able to receive prenatal care at Emory Women's Center, with deliveries continuing to take place at Emory University Hospital Midtown.
Generalist Mary Dolan, MD, MPH, a Certified Menopause Practitioner through the North American Menopause Society (NAMS). Dolan offers a specialty clinic focusing on the needs of the menopausal woman, with an emphasis on preventive care.

Alan Gordon, MD, and Ira Horowitz, MD, SM, who provide gynecologic oncology specialty care. Emory Saint Joseph's is already home to many providers from the Winship Cancer Institute, ensuring that cancer patients receive the latest cancer treatments available.
