Through each stage of life, get medical care that's specially designed for a woman

You expect specialized care that addresses a woman's unique medical needs. That's why we established the Novant Health Maya Angelou Women's Health & Wellness Center at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center. Better understanding your medical needs helped us transform how we approach healthcare for women at each stage of life. For example, we know that you may be busy caring for your family and inclined to put off your own care. We're making healthcare more convenient than ever, so you can keep up with the day's demands. Schedule all of your appointments with just one call.


Through each decade, we bring you clinical expertise and breakthrough treatments using innovative technology. We're equally committed to giving you compassionate care - all to help you achieve the highest quality of life.

With many diseases and illnesses, women have symptoms that are unlike a man's and require a different approach to diagnosis and treatment. We know how to help.

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.
