Rumford Hospital provides women's primary health care through
its Swift River Health Care, Elsemore Dixfield Center and River Valley Internal Medicine offices.
It is our mission to ensure that the highest quality women's
health services are accessible to all women. Our team includes
a board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist, four family practice
physicians, three internal medicine physicians and a Family Nurse Practitioner
and provides women's health care throughout the lifespan,
from education about puberty changes and preventative GYN
care through contraceptive counseling, obstetrical care, infertility,
and the peri- and postmenopausal periods. In addition to our
outpatient services, our Obstetrician/Gynecologist specializes
in gynecologic surgeries.
Diagnostic services available at RH include mammography,
breast and pelvic ultrasonography, pelvic CT scanning, mobile
DEXA (osteoporosis) scanning, and laboratory testing including
glucose, thyroid function and cholesterol screening.
Rumford Hospital is proud to sponsor several events every
year honoring women's special health needs, including an Annual
Women's Health Fair, an annual Breast and Cervical Health
clinic, and free osteoporosis screening. In this era of rising
health care costs and shrinking insurance benefits, Rumford
Hospital is dedicated to maintaining access to health care
for all members of our community. Please ask about our sliding
scale fee schedule at the Swift River and Elsemore-Dixfield
