The Pavilion for Women at Texas Children's Hospital
  • The Women's Specialists of Houston focuses on the family

    Our practice provides quality OB/GYN care in a supportive environment. Contact us at 713-797-1144.

    The Women’s Specialists of Houston at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women is a multispecialty group practice of board-certified obstetricians/gynecologists, nurse midwives, nurse practitioners and physician assistants committed to improving the healthcare of women and their families.

    In 1994, seven physicians, led by Dr. Edward Yosowitz, merged their successful, private practices to form The Women’s Specialists of Houston. The group became the first private OB/GYN practice in Houston to fully integrate nurse midwives, offering an alternative option for families in the community. The Nurse Midwifery service has grown to four midwives, delivering over three hundred babies annually.
