Abstract

This paper describes the characteristics of the clinical centers of the first 12 National Centers of Excellence (CoE) in Women's Health, designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health between 1996 and 1997. These centers are compared with 56 hospital-sponsored primary care women's health centers identified in the 1994 National Survey of Women's Health Centers, the only source of nationally representative data on primary care women's health centers. While analysis demonstrates that some organizational and clinical attributes of primary care women's health centers were in evidence before the CoE program was initiated, the CoE centers demonstrate further integration of clinical services with research and medical training in women's health, and the delivery of services to a more diverse population of women.
