Penn State Health St. Joseph has always been intentional in our support of women both within our organization and throughout the community. One of the more visible signs of this support is our women’s health program.
Recognizing that women’s bodies differ from men’s in many subtle ways, we have made specialized care for women’s health issues a priority. In addition to hiring a urogynecologist, who specializes in treating all conditions of the female urinary and reproductive tract, we staff a rheumatologist, who treats the high proportion of women who have rheumatoid arthritis.
St. Joseph also continues to make it easier for women to access our services. If you’re a woman over 40 or you have a family history of breast cancer, a yearly screening mammogram is one of the most important things you can do to take care of yourself. Early detection gives you the best chance of beating breast cancer. St. Joseph has helped by introducing the only no-referral-needed mammography service in Berks County. Women now can walk into our Exeter Ridge or Bern campus locations and get a screening mammogram without a referral or appointment.
Our obstetrics providers, certified nurse midwives and pediatricians offer care close to home through several locations in Berks County, including our Exeter Ridge practice, which recently began offering obstetric and gynecologic care. That strong focus on mother and child health care, along with the implementation of the 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, led to Baby-Friendly USA designating St. Joseph as a Baby-Friendly Hospital.
We invite you to learn more about our commitment to providing comprehensive, compassionate women’s health services at every stage of life. Visit our online platform at www.PennStateHealthWomensHealth.org to find out how we can partner with you in achieving lifelong health and wellness.

“Partnering with Women2Women has been valuable not only for the students benefiting from a 20% tuition discount on their classes here at Alvernia University, but also for the school, and for me! Alvernia University has been able to take advantage of innovative and important programming for women leaders in our community, and we appreciate the excellent networking opportunities that come along with attending the events to forward our mission to recruit, enroll, and graduate lifelong learners! I enjoy the professional way Women2Women facilitates events and activities and have personally benefited from the diverse programming. As a representative of AU, I’m proud to be part of the effort to create more women leaders in Reading and Berks County!”
