WHAT IS SPIRIT OF WOMEN?
The success of Spirit of Women lies in the synergy between local and regional hospitals, national corporations, and media partners that is replicated in communities across the country leveraging strength in numbers and common goals.

The Spirit of Women national brand is anchored by media support such as Oprah Magazine, Good Housekeeping, and The Today Show. The Spirit of Women Hospital Network frequently works in cooperation with
U.S. government health agencies such as The Office on Women's Health and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

Spirit of Women hospitals are committed to making good health easier and to help women and their families take ACTION that results in better health.  Spirit of Women hospitals aspire to the highest standards in women’s health outreach and clinical care. Spirit hospitals strive to uphold seven standards of excellence in women's health in an effort to improve sensitivity and customization to individual healthcare needs.
