Women's Health Program
“We take pride in the exceptional care we provide our patients. Here, women have their own comfortable, calm space to feel empowered and encouraged to embrace wellness.”
- Mary Lizabeth Aquavia, MD, Medical Director
At Waterbury HEALTH, we’re committed to providing women of all ages with compassionate, comprehensive quality care. Our Women’s Health Program focuses on wellness and prevention of disease.
Our philosophy is based on empowering women to be active partners in their healthcare. We aim to create a comfortable environment where patients can freely speak about any health concerns while feeling heard and validated. While our healthcare professionals can treat conditions as they arise, the Women’s Health Program at Waterbury HEALTH also values prevention and health maintenance that puts emphasis on healthy lifestyle choices and recommended health screenings.
We provide a personalized health risk assessment for all our patients that serves as a screening tool to help assess your overall health status and estimate levels of disease risk. Based on the results, our team will offer constructive feedback and concrete steps that patients can take to improve their wellness and quality of life.
Our expert staff includes a dedicated team of physicians, surgeons, registered nurses, technicians, and a personal health navigator. In addition to all OBGYN services, our physicians have expertise in the following areas:
- Primary care
- Breast health, including breast cancer and surgery
- Bone health
- Pelvic health
- Behavioral health
We also offer convenient on-site medical imaging at our Women’s Imaging Center, which combines state-of-the-art technology with a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere. Imaging tests are performed by our highly trained, board-certified radiologists and technologists. Services include 3D mammography, high-resolution ultrasound, bone densitometry, and breast MRI.
The Women’s Health Program at Waterbury HEALTH is led by Dr. Mary Lizabeth Aquavia, a board-certified physician who specializes in internal medicine. She has been practicing medicine in Greater Waterbury for more than 30 years and was instrumental in developing women-centered primary care in the region. Dr. Aquavia is strong believer in disease prevention, health maintenance, and enabling her patients to increase control over – and to improve – their health.
