Women's Care at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman

Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman provides quality, comprehensive medical services geared specifically to the needs of women.

Whether you are 18 years old or 65, you can benefit from the women’s health services offered at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman (PHK).

“The mission at PHK is to provide compassionate care to all patients, and as part of that, a wide range of medical services are available for women,” says Angelina Rivero, M.D., OB/GYN on the medical staff at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman. “The aim is to bring patients a local, one-stop shop for care, whether they are having a baby or a hysterectomy.”

Make Room for Baby

Having a baby is a time of joy and excitement, and mothers-to-be find comfortable, aesthetically pleasing labor delivery-recovery (LDR) rooms with surroundings similar to those found at home.

“The spacious LDRs at PHK are designed for the birth and recovery process to happen in one place,” Rivero says. “This allows mothers to keep their babies at their sides following normal deliveries.”

Having a Procedure?

Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman offers minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures for many gynecological issues.

“Patients can benefit from having minimally invasive surgery close to home,” Rivero says. “Through laparoscopic procedures, patients are usually able to leave the hospital within 24 hours and enjoy a decreased recovery period, letting them get back to their
normal activities and families more quickly than they would with traditional surgery.”

Quality Care

As technology advances, so do services for women at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman. Recently, digital mammography was made available to women.

“Approximately 56 women a year are diagnosed with breast cancer in Kaufman County,” Rivero says. “Having digital mammography will permit radiologists on the medical staff to view the breast quickly and accurately in order to provide the most accurate diagnosis, especially since images appear almost immediately after they are taken.”

All women over the age of 40 should have annual mammograms in order to diagnose breast cancer in its earliest stages, when treatment is most effective.
