Complete Women Care, an OB-GYN provider, has established a Gynecology Emergent Care Center in Bixby Knolls.
The first of its kind in California, the Gynecology Emergent Care Center offers a range of services that include lab tests, imaging, surgery and medication in a setting that is more convenient and affordable than a traditional emergency room, according to Dr. Miriam Mackovic-Basic, founder of Complete Women Care and the new Gynecology Emergent Care Center (GYN ECC).
Mackovic-Basic explained that the new emergency facility is part of her lifelong mission to provide the most advanced healthcare for women. Gynecological emergencies are often considered low priority in emergency rooms, where patients are likely to be treated by doctors who are not OB-GYNS, she added.
“The GYN ECC boasts an all-female staff of accomplished physicians who together have performed more than 50,000 surgical procedures and assisted more than 10,000 women during labor and delivery,” according to the release.
Mackovic-Basic said: “This is a micro-specialized OB-GYN hospital.”
GYN ECC is at 3711 Long Beach Blvd. Suite 101. For details, call (855) 376-2496 or visit www.gyn-emergentcare.com.
