Katz Institute for Women's Health


At the Katz Institute for Women's Health (KIWH), we understand that the needs of women are unique. That is why we are dedicated to improving the health and wellness of women across their lifespan. We know that there are conditions that affect women only, conditions that are more common in women than men and conditions where the risk factors and presentation in women are different from men. For just these reasons, the Katz Institute was established to coordinate, integrate and promote the continuum of women’s health, through education, wellness and prevention strategies, screening and early detection, treatment, and support services. The Katz Institute is a valuable resource for women and their families and serves as an entryway to coordinated, multi-disciplinary care provided by a network of highly-trained physicians and staff offering the latest diagnostic and treatment options in state-of-the-art facilities.

Katz Institute for Women's Health At North Shore-LIJ

The Katz Institute for Women's Health is dedicated to the unique health needs of women. Certain conditions are more common in women—or even affect them only—and the risk factors, signs and symptoms of so many diseases are not the same in women as they are in men.
