Women's Health

Fauquier Health attends to the healthcare needs of women of all ages. We are fully equipped to diagnose and treat ailments from puberty to the childbearing years to menopause, and beyond. From our Emergency Department to our Family Birthing Center and Center for Cancer Care, we've got you covered.

Birthing Services

The anticipation of a new baby brings a lot of joy and excitement — and a lot of new decisions. One of the most important decisions is choosing a facility and staff that puts the patient first. Fauquier Health offers an unmatched quality of care and programs that has made it one of the top-rated Northern Virginia birthing centers.

The O’Shaughnessy Family Birthing Center at Fauquier Health offers the very best in maternity and delivery care. Our state of the art birthing center serves much of Northern Virginia – including Warrenton, Bull Run and Haymarket. We look at each birth as a natural, normal and uniquely personal event, and our expert caring staff treats each family with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Center for Cancer Care

Fauquier Health Center for Cancer Care was established with a specific goal in mind - to help guide patients through all phases of cancer care. Our mission is to ensure that all patients receive the highest level of care, from screening, to dianosis, to treatment, to survivorship, to end of life care. The most common cancers that affect women are:

  • breast cancer
  • colon cancer
  • endometrial cancer
  • lung cancer
  • cervical cancer
  • skin cancer
  • ovarian cancer

The Center for Cancer Care includes the Infusion Center and Fauquier Health Hemotology/Oncology. An oncology nurse navigator helps guide patients who are faced with a cancer diagnosis, providing individualized assistance with managing testing and consultation appointments, transportation, financial issues and emotional support.

Medical Imaging

Medical imaging and radiology help physicians detect, diagnose and treat disease. At Fauquier Health, we offer a full range of screening, diagnostic and interventional imaging and radiology procedures using the most advanced technology available. Our "high tech/high touch" approach, combined with our convenient hours and experienced staff, results in quicker images, greater accuracy, and a more positive and comfortable experience for our Northern Virginia area patients.

Our open MRI option is available for larger patients or for those who are uncomfortable in confined spaces.

Medical imaging services specifically for women include:

  • Diagnostic and screening digital mammography
  • Low-dose 3D mammography
  • Breast MRI
  • Bone density scans

Surgical Services

As both an art and a science, surgery is the branch of medicine that encompasses preoperative preparation, intraoperative judgment and management and postoperative care of clients. Our entire surgical team, from surgeons to post-op nurses, radiate compassion, concern and empathy for the patient combined with the latest advancements in surgery. Dedication to the welfare and safety of the patient is shown through scientific knowledge and individualized nursing care.

Safety and quality measures for the surgical suite are excellent, and our infection rates are low, and continue to drop.

These most common surgeries in women (and many others) are all performed at Fauquier Hospital:

  • appendectomy
  • cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
  • colorectal resection
  • fundoplication (treatment for GERD)
  • hernia repair
  • hysterectomy

Heart and Vascular Center

Heart disease is the number one cause of death for women. In addition to helping you take care of your heart with preventative programs, Fauquier Health offers cardiac screenings and emergency care, and is a Certified Primary Stroke Center. Cardiac rehabilitation is available at the Fauquier Health Wellness Center for those who are recovering from a cardiac event.

Physical Therapy for Women

Women’s bodies are unique and they require specialized solutions to issues like incontinence, pelvic floor pain, obstetric, orthopedic, prenatal and postpartum dysfunctions. Fauquier Health offers specialized care just for these issues.

We offer a comprehensive physical therapy evaluation and evidence-based treatments individually created for your specific needs. Therapeutic interventions to the pelvic floor, hips, spine or abdomen may include:

  • Biofeedback to provide visual observation of pelvic floor muscle contractions to assist you in improving strength and continence recovery
  • Ultrasound treatment may be indicated to decrease pain from scars, adhesions, episiotomies, surgery, trauma to the pelvic floor, muscle spasms, postpartum or post surgical swelling, hemorrhoids or joint pain
  • Electric stimulation may help vaginal or pelvic pain, urinary or fecal incontinence, endometriosis, weak pelvic floor muscles, joint or tail bone (coccyx) pain, muscle spasms or tension leading to tight or overactive pelvic floor muscles
  • Our therapists are trained in manual skills to assist with joint mobility, relieve trigger point tenderness, tissue shortening, scar immobility, and muscle spasms

We understand that women prefer privacy and discretion for some sensitive therapy issues. Our private, women’s therapy room (in the Medical Office Building at 253 Veterans Drive in Warrenton) provides the comfortable atmosphere you need to relax and recover.

Fauquier Health offers a host of other physical, occupational and speech therapy at the Medical Office Building and for inpatients at the hospital.

Laboratory

Fauquier Hospital operates a full-service laboratory in conjunction with Pathfinder Diagnostics, Lab Corporation of America, Mayo Medical Laboratories, and the American Red Cross. The laboratory provides consultation services in most areas of anatomic and clinical pathology and comprehensive laboratory services to physician offices.

Fauquier Health Wellness Center

Sometimes disease or injury requires a trip to the doctor's office or Emergency Department. But a focus on wellness -- getting and staying healthy -- can go a long way to keeping you free of chronic disease and living your best life. the Fauquier Health Wellness Center can help.

At Wellness Center, the emphasis is on individualized success, with lots of equipment choices, one-on-one attention from exercise specialists and a convenient, comfortable, beautifully designed facility.
