About the Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital

When it comes to her gynecologic health, it’s important that a woman receives total care, whether she is dealing with a medical issue or if she is healthy and in need of routine care.

We provide comprehensive treatment for patients with normal and high-risk pregnancies, and we expertly address a wide range of gynecologic and women's health concerns, including:

  • Adolescent gynecology
  • Gynecologic care for adolescents and women with disabilities
  • Comprehensive infertility services, including in vitro fertilization
  • Genetic counseling
  • Gynecologic management for women with breast cancer
  • Gynecologic urology
  • Management of women with BRCA gene mutations (genes susceptible to breast cancer)
  • Cervical, Ovarian and other gynecologic cancers
  • Pelvic pain
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Prenatal diagnostics
  • Reproductive gynecology, including menopause

Our program, based on the philosophy of multispecialty team care, provides well-rounded services for women, including midwifery, a family planning clinic, fetal diagnosis and therapy, and minimally invasive surgery. We have been recognized as a National Center of Excellence in Women's Health.

The University of Michigan Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital

The University of Michigan Women’s Hospital opened in 1950 with a focus on providing world-class maternity and obstetrics services. It also housed facilities to teach nursing and medical students, and supported research dedicated to transforming care for all women.

Roughly 60 years later – in November 2011 – we moved into our new home in the state-of-the-art, 12-story C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital facility, with the support of a $15 million gift from the Ted and Jane Von Voigtlander Foundation.

The women’s hospital encompasses a birthing center that features 50 private labor, delivery and recovery rooms, a perinatal assessment center, a high-risk labor and delivery area, a neonatal intensive care unit and a fetal surgery program. The entire facility is the length of two football fields at 1.1 million square feet and consists of two conjoined towers that will bridge inpatient and outpatient services.
