Mission Trail Baptist Hospital expands access to care for women on southeast side

Dec 2, 2022

New Healthy Women’s Center brings needed early pregnancy care to women in the community

healthy-womens-center-300x115(San Antonio, TX) – Baptist Health System is enhancing and expanding women’s services at Mission Trail Baptist Hospital. A new Healthy Women’s Center is now open on the Mission Trail campus to bring access to early pregnancy care for women living and working on the southeast side of San Antonio.

“This new resource is helping women receive access to early prenatal care to achieve a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery,” said Liza Denman, Chief Strategy Officer for Women’s Services at Baptist Health System. “Our women’s centers connect patients with resources and unique navigation throughout their pregnancy journey.”

Like the four other Healthy Women’s Centers located across San Antonio, the Mission Trail location offers free, walk-in pregnancy testing, assistance applying for insurance and Medicaid eligibility, physician referral, information on community assistance resources, follow up appointments throughout the woman’s pregnancy and pre-registration support with the patient’s hospital of choice.

Mission Trail sees as many as 60 pregnant women a month in the ER for a variety of issues, most have received no prenatal care. “The new women’s center at Mission Trail works closely with ER care coordinators to connect patients with care that can help prevent further ER visits and establish regular appointments with an OB/GYN,” said Erik Frederick, Mission Trail CEO.

The Healthy Women and Free Pregnancy Testing Center is located in the Medical Office Building adjacent to the hospital at 3327 Research Plaza, Suite 103. Also located in the same building are the new offices of Acacia OB/GYN. The practice moved from IH-35 and Zarzamora to be closer to Mission Trail Baptist Hospital and its women’s care services. Dr. Hatem Hatem has served the southside community for several years and in the fall of 2021 joined Dr. Jessica Guerrero, an established obstetrician/gynecologist and Dr. Aurora Dominguez, who have served the women of south San Antonio for several years.

Mission Trail Baptist Hospital recently earned Neonatal Level II designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services, which commended the hospital for its commitment to quality care and the commitment to patients.

The new Healthy Women’s Center is now open.
