WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Forsyth Medical Center announced Tuesday the creation of the Maya Angelou Center for Women’s Health and Wellness.

Forsyth County Medical Center called it “the region’s first women’s center to coordinate comprehensive healthcare and wellness services designed to meet the needs of women through out every stage of life.”

The center brings together all clinical programs and services for women to address specific needs.

“We’re changing the traditional approach of care for women,” said Jeff Lindsay, president of Forsyth Medical Center, “by reorienting our entire medical center to recognize the significant physical and social differences that women have compared to men”.

According to Lindsay, the inspiration for the center’s name and its focus on creating greater health and wellness among women, came from Dr. Angelou who transcends generations and whose ideas resonate with women around the world.
