Our mission at the Medina County Health Department is to prevent disease, assure a healthful environment, prolong life, and promote the well-being of the citizens of Medina County. Many of our services and programs focus on educating all citizens, but we also recognize that women experience unique health issues and conditions.

The Health Department has a full-time family practice physician, a full-time family nurse practitioner, and a certified nurse midwife who are all trained to provide complete services for women. General physicals, breast and cervical cancer screenings, low cost reproductive health care, and consultation for gynecological issues are just some of the services available.

Regular health exams and tests can help and problems before they start. Some health issues that are common to both men and women affect women differently, so it is important to work with a provider who recognizes this and works with you as an individual. By getting the right health services, screenings, and treatments you are taking steps for living a longer, healthier life. For women of reproductive age it is especially important to address issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and substance abuse, which may affect future fertility, pregnancies, and birth outcomes.
