UAB Medicine Spring/Summer 2010

Table of Contents banner

In the sunlit lobby of the brand-new Women & Infants Center at UAB, you’ll discover windows to the past. They’re stained-glass panels set into a glass wall—the last vestiges of the Crippled Children’s Clinic and Hospital that once stood a few blocks away. They serve as a reminder of the medical center’s rich legacy of caring for women and babies—one that stretches back more than a century.

That legacy took a great leap forward this February with the opening of the Women & Infants Center, one of the most technologically advanced facilities of its kind in the nation. For the UAB Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a new home has helped inspire new ways of providing patient care and comfort, bold research initiatives, and novel educational opportunities. Those stained-glass windows to the past, it turns out, might also be windows to the future.
