Health & Wellness


As a woman, you have a lot on your plate and your health might not be your top priority. But a strong and healthy body is the foundation for a fulfilling life. Your well-being impacts your career, relationships and family – so when you’re tempted to put off that appointment, test or screening - remember that by taking care of yourself, you’re actually prioritizing all the things that are most important to you.

Health isn’t just about not being sick – it’s a holistic view of your general well-being that includes mind, body and community. At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, we provide women with the resources to thrive in all aspects of wellness.
