Women’s Health

Boston’s Women’s Health Experts

Meeting the health care needs of all women, especially lesbians, bisexual and transgender women, is an integral part of Fenway Health’s mission. We excel in the prevention, early detection and treatment of diseases women face and in empowering women to make healthy decisions in their day-to-day lives.

We provide supportive and sensitive care regardless of a woman’s sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, religion, or ability to pay.

Our Team-Based Approach to Your Care:

Every medical patient at Fenway works with a primary care team, which includes a primary care provider and a registered nurse who are actively involved in your care. Depending upon your preference, your primary care provider may be a physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner. You may request a Spanish-speaking provider.

Your provider serves as a team leader and coordinates all routine medical care: exams, lab tests, medical imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. In addition, your provider is concerned about emotional and lifestyle factors—such as stress, diet, substance abuse, or high-risk sexual behavior—that affect your health.

When appropriate, your team will refer you to other Fenway resources such as behavioral health and complementary therapies, or in-house specialty services including dermatology, pulmonology and podiatry.

Our Commitment to High-Quality Care for All Women:

Discrimination in the health care system and social stigma often make lesbian, bisexual and transgender women hesitant to seek or continue medical care. Fenway Health provides high-quality primary medical and behavioral health care in a safe, affirming environment.

Fenway’s Women’s Health Team, directed by Dr. Jenny Potter, is a national leader in medical care, research, education, and community outreach for our diverse community women, especially sexual and gender minorities.
