Meet Linda Ingham...
A Four Generation Journey With BMH
Fifty years and five great-grandchildren later, at age 80, the Village of Fredonia resident still frequents Brooks; but now as a visitor in the maternity wing or at the hospital’s specialty Women’s Imaging Center for her annual mammogram. “Four generations of women in my family have gone to BROOKS for all of our healthcare needs. I delivered my children there - my daughter gave birth to her child there - and all five of my great-grandchildren were born there. My daughter makes sure I have my annual mammogram at Brooks too.”
Women’s health remains among the priorities at Brooks as it continues to expand and strengthen its service offering, with quality care geared specifically to women at every life stage. Specialty Ob/Gyn physicians help adolescent girls understand a healthy body image and safe sex practices, and nutrition-focused Ob/Gyn care for pregnant, lactating and post-partum women is the norm at Brooks. Private rooms are standard in the state-of-the-art maternity wing, which features pediatric newborn care, certified lactation counselors and an experienced nursing staff to help women carry out personalized birthing plans.
Breast health, early detection and cancer prevention are top priority for a team of healthcare professionals who cater to mature women, busy moms and working women. The hospital’s Women’s Imaging Center offers extended outpatient hours for digital mammograms, ultrasound, MRIs and bone scans with the same high quality service, technology and expertise found in Buffalo or Erie. Women just like Linda trust Brooks to help her maintain an active lifestyle and the energy needed to fully enjoy a growing generation of healthy families in Northern Chautauqua County.
