History of the center
Healthcare services for women are available in a specially designed section of Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center. This is the Maya Angelou Women's Health and Wellness Center. Our goal is to ensure that women, with their unique responses to medical conditions, receive care that is based on the latest scientific findings and delivered through a personal wellness plan.
The idea for specially designed healthcare services for women began 125 years ago in Winston, North Carolina. A group of women formed the Ladies' Twin City Hospital Association, the forerunner of Forsyth Medical Center. In 2001, the Sara Lee Center for Women's Health was created at the medical center to provide leading-edge care. On June 28, 2012, the center became larger and more comprehensive - with a new name that recognizes poet, author and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou for her commitment to creating greater health and wellness among women.
Providing care through every stage of your life
From teens through adulthood, each decade of a woman's life is an opportunity for growth and the pursuit of vibrant health in mind, body and spirit. The center coordinates comprehensive healthcare and wellness services specifically designed to meet your unique needs through every stage of life.
