Women & Infants Hospital

Women & Infants Hospital is introducing The Menopause Program which will include a team of multidisciplinary providers such as obstetrician/gynecologists, internal medicine providers, cardiologists, behavioral health specialists, and endocrinologists.

“Women & Infants Hospital is committed to providing services to women at all ages and stages of their lives. And while we have for years offered programs to menopausal women, this new program allows us to better coordinate care across disciplines,” said Maureen G. Phipps, MD, MPH

According to the medical definition, menopause begins when a woman's menstrual cycle has ended for a year. The reason this happens is due to a decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone. Menopause occurs, on average, around age 50.

“Menopause can be a very challenging time in a woman’s life, affecting many aspects of her physical and emotional well-being. Postmenopausal women are at increased risk for heart disease and osteoporosis, so it is vital that they not only be treated for their menopausal symptoms, but that they also maintain a strong relationship with their own primary care provider to ensure that health problems can be discovered and treated early.  We will be working closely with each patient’s primary care provider to ensure continuity of care," said Renee Eger, MD, director of the Menopause Program and medical director of the Women's Primary Care Center.

The Program

The Menopause Program will offer evaluation and treatment of vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats along with vulvovaginal problems like vaginal dryness, pain, burning and painful intercourse.

The team will also provide preventative care services for midlife women which includes breast health, bone health, emotional and psychological health and cardiovascular screening.

Patients of the program will be seen at two locations on the hospital's providence campus. Those locations are at the Women's Primary Care Center on 2 Dudley Street and at the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, located on 90 Plain Street.
