The goal is to provide excellent, state of the art care in a compassionate environment; also offering a procedure center with anesthesia and up to date tools and equipment. The care givers at IWH regularly attend continuing medical education, consult with experts as needed and approach each patient as unique individuals. Our extended services,in the same location 1626 30th Ave Suite 200 (2nd Floor), include a birthing center for low risk pregnancy, Interior Birthing Center.
