Women's Health Clinic

Talking with a doctor or nurse about your most personal health questions and concerns can sometimes feel uncomfortable or embarrassing, but it's important. Routine care, and treatment if problems happen, are essential to your health and wellness, now and throughout your life.

The Women's Health Clinic is a private, comfortable and supportive environment, providing quality, respectful and confidential gynecological and reproductive health services.

UHS has been leading the way in women's healthcare since 1971. We honor the diversity of all women and their beliefs, experiences, cultural understandings, sexual orientation and gender identity.

About sexual assault

The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program

Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact that takes place without consent; it’s a crime of violence and control that can happen to anyone.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health's SANE program specially trains nurses and doctors to provide quality care and forensic evidence collection to sexual assault survivors. UHS is a designated SANE site, providing confidential, compassionate services for female, male and transgender survivors.

Call UHS, (413) 577-5000, as soon as possible after an assault and before showering. More about SANE...
