Putnam County Hospital has many resources in place to provide well-rounded care to patients with Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance.

Lillian states, “The way that the complexity of a woman affects their healthcare needs is what I enjoy most about being a women’s health care provider.  I believe it is imperative for my care to reflect my sincerity not only for what comprises a woman biologically, but for what makes her who she is.  At Putnam County Women’s Healthcare, I hope to create an environment where women feel they have the support and partnership they need to attain their health goals, however modest or monumental they may be.”

Putnam Women’s Healthcare is located just behind the elevators on the main level of Putnam County Hospital. Office hours are 8:30am-5:00pm.To make your appointment with Lillian, please call Putnam Women’s Healthcare at 765.655.2686
