Other Women's Center Services

This unique Women's Center has been developed for women, by women to better address your needs and to enrich your experience. We are excited to offer South Florida comprehensive women's health services. Our mission is not only to promote your physical health, but to care for you emotionally and spiritually as well.  In addition to our clinical and diagnostic services, we offer:

Marti Huizenga Meditation Chapel and Healing Garden

Made possible by a $750,000 donation from philanthropist Marti Huizenga in support of the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women's Center, the Marti Huizenga Meditation Chapel and Healing Garden opened in May 2012. The chapel includes a beatufiul stained glass installation, natural glowing sunlight and a warm look that lends itself to meditation, prayer and reflection. The garden features tall trees providing shade, wooden benches, winding paths and fragrant flowers. It is a calming place where patients and families can go in a time of anxiety or worry.


Following in the footsteps of Lorelei's Gift Shop at Holy Cross Hospital, the special boutique opened its doors in May 2012. While the women of our community take care of their health needs, they can now also stop by the boutique and grab a chic gift to go. Carrying magazines, books, greeting cards, flameless candles, nightlights, chimes, garden flags, journals, jewelry, accessories, bookmarks, reading glasses and many other varieties of gift and home decor items, there is something there for everyone. While their biggest selling items are inspirational gifts and cards, their top-selling brands are Britto and Suzy Toronto.

Like Lorelei's Gift Shop, the boutique benefits the Holy Cross Hospital Auxiliary. The Auxiliary in turn donates their annual profits from the Gift Shop, Pink Lady Thrift Store, annual fundraising event, and now the boutique, to the Women's Center. The boutique is located at the main entrance of the Women's Center, next to the Marti Huizenga Meditation Chapel and Healing Garden.
