Whole Woman’s Health: Surrounded by Passionate People

At Whole Woman’s Health, our mission is larger than healthcare. We are here to make the world a better place, for the women we know now and those who will follow in our footsteps. We honor women’s voices and stories and know they are an important part of our history.

That’s why every room in our 7 facilities is named after a woman who inspires us. From Eleanor Roosevelt to Frida Kahlo, we aspire to share their stories and accomplishments with our patients, and remind ourselves daily that women are powerful.

We’re very proud of our new little postcards, which include a collage of our favorite historical women – our “room women.” See if you can spot a few, or click their names to learn more about them:

Carmen Miranda, Eleanor Roosevelt, Molly Ivans, Sarah Weddington, Maya Angelou, Sandra Cisneros, Sojourner Truth, Rosie the Riveter, Audre Lorde, Selena, Tank Girl, Amelia Earhardt, Margaret Sanger, Julia Child, Georgia O’Keeffe, Virginia Woolf, Rosa Parks, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Gloria Estefan, Alice Walker, Celia Cruz, Amy Tan, Babe Didrikson, Florence Nightingale, Margaret Cho, Dolores Huerta, Indira Gandhi, Marie Curie, Isabel Allende

  1. I find it interesting that one of your rooms is named after Rosa Parks and one after Margaret Sanger. Margaret Sanger in her own words was a racist Eugenic who called blacks “…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people. Not to mention her involvement in the “Negro Project”. I’m not surprised that Sanger has a room named after her, after all she said and I quote: “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923) Considering that is what goes on in your clinic it is fitting. But I think Rosa Parks would be offended. (Now I will count to see how long it takes this post to be deleted.)

    Have a good day. 🙂
