COSHOCTON – Women’s health has long been the focus of Betty Gwinn, CNP, a certified nurse practitioner who has served the Coshocton area communities for more than 14 years. With her recent move to the Coshocton Women’s Health Center, her practice is now uniquely dedicated to the health concerns women face over a lifetime.

As women mature through adolescence, adulthood, middle age and beyond, they can face conditions and challenges related to each stage of life. In her practice, Gwinn serves her patients in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to a woman’s reproductive system, including gynecological exams, contraception and family planning, menopause concerns, menstrual issues, sexual dysfunction, and urinary problems.

After maintaining her practice in family medicine and women’s care for many years as a provider at Coshocton Hospital Family Physicians Clinic, Gwinn was enthusiastic about the opportunity to work exclusively in women’s health.

“This is what I love,” she explained. “No woman wants to come for a gynecological exam and I understand that. It’s my role to create a calming atmosphere that encourages my patients to ask questions and seek information. It is all about helping women to feel comfortable discussing personal health concerns so they can get back to living a full, healthy life.”

Gwinn has designed her office as a patient-focused environment and manages her practice to make the best use of her patient’s time.

“I have a terrific support staff who recognize that our patients want to spend their visit getting the care and information they need,” said Gwinn. “We have a very nice waiting room, but I know patients don’t want to spend their time waiting. I like to be kept busy talking with my patients and addressing their health concerns, so we work hard to give each woman the time she needs, when she needs it.”

In keeping with Gwinn’s philosophy of patient-centered care, she instructs her staff to fit time in her schedule for same-day appointments for women who need immediate care.

Gwinn received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Ohio University in Zanesville and her Master of Science in Nursing from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pa. She earned her Nurse Practitioner Certification in 2000 in Philadelphia. She is accepting new patients at the Coshocton Women’s Care Center located at 311 S. 15th St., Suite 102, in Coshocton. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 622-7144.
