Celebrate Women's Health with The Johnson Center

Did you know that historically, women and people with menstrual cycles have been excluded from vital healthcare research? Or that women are seven times more likely to be misdiagnosed during a heart attack?

Join us in empowering women to take charge of their health.

The Johnson Center is dedicated to giving every body a voice. We prioritize providing meaningful services for our female members, including tailored insights and guidance for their unique bodies and overall health.

"Women have long been overlooked and underserved in healthcare. It's time to change that narrative." - Dr. Barbara Johnson, Medical Director, The Johnson Center

Championing Women's Health

Founded by women, with women's health at the core of our mission, The Johnson Center is proud to have innovators like Dr. Barbara Johnson, Owner and Medical Director; Amanda Hudgins, DNP; Rebecca Johnson, Practice Administrator; Shelley Bitzer, Health Coach; Kelly Finnegan, PA-C; Kristina McIrvin, NP, Nikole Mihill, RN and Barbara Morsa, Health Coach in leading the way in women's health development.

"Women deserve to be heard and supported in their healthcare journey. Our goal is to provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to advocate for themselves." - Dr. Barbara Johnson

A Holistic Approach to Women’s Healthcare

Women and menstrual cycles have been historically marginalized in healthcare research, leading to a significant knowledge gap with serious implications. Women are twice as likely as men to experience adverse drug events and twice as likely to die after a heart attack.

Shockingly, a 2023 poll found that 77% of women feel they are their only health advocate, with 57% reporting dismissive or misdiagnosing experiences with medical professionals.

"Our mission is to bridge the gap in women's healthcare by providing comprehensive, compassionate care that addresses the unique needs of women." - Dr. Barbara Johnson
