The Top Benefits of VHC Health: Exceptional Women’s Care

Finding a health provider is hard work. More than anything, we want a doctor who will believe us and help us find solutions when something doesn’t quite feel right. And while a compassionate provider is necessary at all times, it’s especially crucial throughout pregnancy as well as the postpartum stage. If you’ve been on the search for a network of doctors who will be there for any stage of your life, I would love to tell you about VHC Health. This hospital has some of the best professionals in nearly every specialty. 


About VHC Health


Since it started in 1934, VHC has always had a knack for exceptional women’s care. Women’s clubs founded the hospital and started with a humble 100 beds. From there, the hospital expanded, adding more rooms, more specialties, and, of course, more doctors. Ninety years later, the hospital has continued to receive recognition for its commitment to excellence. 

Newsweek recognized it as one of the best maternity hospitals in the nation in 2020, and U.S. News and World Report named it a top hospital in Virginia and Washington, DC. The hospital is a Mayo Clinic Care Network center and acts as the Official Women’s Health Partner of the Washington Commanders. You can find the hospital at 1701 N. George Mason Drive in Arlington.  



At VHC Health, you’ll find general practitioners as well as specialists. The hospital offers allergists, dermatologists, radiologists, and infectious disease experts. VHC has created several self-designated Centers of Excellence, including cardiology, emergency, neuroscience, oncology, urology, and women and infant health. 

The center boasts an impressive behavioral and mental health department, offering help for anxiety disorders, depression, and substance abuse disorders. Their surgical department uses the latest technology, including robotic surgery for minimally invasive procedures. 



While VHC provides comprehensive healthcare, its women’s health department is especially fantastic. The gynecology department offers regular pap testing and exams, birth control, and treatment for menstrual disorders. Throughout your pregnancy, you’ll be able to find a provider who will match your family’s style perfectly. Whether you’d like to work with a certified nurse midwife for an unmedicated delivery or need a maternal-fetal medicine specialist for a high-risk pregnancy, they have the right person for you. 

The hospital has gone out of its way to make it a comfortable spot for your delivery. You’ll be placed in your private suite, with access to helpful tools for medicated and unmedicated deliveries. Your support person will be close by with their cozy chairs or roomy couches. The hospital does offer a nursery if you need a break, but you can also choose to have your baby stay by your side as much as possible. Your care will not end following delivery. The center provides comprehensive postpartum care to give you a headstart on your recovery journey.
