Gretchen S. & Edward A. Fish Center for Women's Health

The Gretchen S. and Edward A. Fish Center for Women’s Health is a multi-specialty practice serving women and men which opened in May 2005 at the Brigham and Women’s Health Care Center at 850 Boylston Street in Chestnut Hill. The Fish Center for Women's Health has outstanding physicians who, in addition to being on staff at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, are also members of the faculty at Harvard Medical School. The staff includes physician assistants, nurses, medical assistants and administrative staff who will coordinate your healthcare needs from the time of your initial visit through your follow-up care. The Fish Center for Women's Health also offers a variety of specialty programs that consider all aspects of health throughout the life span.

The goal of the Fish Center for Women's Health is to provide high quality, integrated clinical services and education based on leading-edge research on women’s health and gender-specific care. The practice supports particular areas of health where the risk and prevalence of disease in women is of particular importance, and those areas in which women have been traditionally under-diagnosed, under-treated, or underserved. The Fish Center for Women's Health has grown from fourteen physicians in July 2005 to forty-six physicians today encompassing primary care and thirteen specialties - cardiology; dermatology; endocrinology, including diabetes and osteoporosis; gastroenterology; gynecology, including urogynecology; hematology; infectious diseases; mental health; neurology; nutrition; renal medicine; rheumatology; and sleep medicine.

For over 180 years, Brigham and Women’s Hospital has been the most trusted name in women’s health – a world leader in helping women live longer, healthier lives. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is committed to improving the health of women and transforming their medical care through sex- and gender-based research on disease, outcomes and the delivery of care. The Fish Center for Women's Health is an important component in our women’s health mission.
