About Us


People choose EMW because our trained and experienced staff provide extremely safe medical care in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. After caring for women at the center for over 39 years, we have learned from our patients that they know themselves best and they assist us in understanding their own individual needs and expectations.

We not only respect all women’s CHOICES but also know that our patient’s needs are unique and that “individualized care”, needs to be available for each of them.

EMW Women’s Surgical Center is a free-standing, state-of-the-art facility located in downtown Louisville, KY.

Our Center is fully equipped with the latest advancements to provide superior medical services. We are constantly refining and evaluating our delivery of services to ensure the highest standards are met.
