A Woman’s Healing Center was founded in 2000 by Dr. Christine Skorberg.
Dr. Skorberg had a vision for an intimate OB-GYN clinic led by a team of doctors who had direct daily contact with patients. As Northern Colorado’s leading expert in prolapse surgery, vaginal hysterectomy, high-risk and routine obstetric care, Dr. Skorberg established A Woman’s Healing Center as a practice where women could get the best of both worlds: individualized attention and expert-level care.
One night in 1990, as chief resident at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Skorberg delivered, or oversaw the delivery, of 22 babies in 12 hours. The delivery room was always so busy it was called the “labor line,” and OB-GYN residents worked 100-plus hours a week.
Amid the pressure and chaos, it was here that Dr. Skorberg confirmed that healing women of all ages, races, and persuasions was her life’s calling. Why? For the simple reason that it made her happy.
More than 10,000 babies later, helping women still drives Dr. Skorberg.
Founding a Practice
After residency, Dr. Skorberg accepted a position at an established multi-partner practice in Lake Forest, Illinois. As the newest doctor, she soon found herself doing nearly 40 percent of the work. Coming as she does from an entrepreneurial family, she decided to open her own solo practice in Fort Collins in 2000. She waited three days for her first patient.
Needless to say, Dr. Skorberg lavished a lot of attention on that first woman—who told her friends, who told their friends. And that established the ideal which has grown A Woman’s Healing Center’s client base to many thousands:
Provide patients and families with personalized attention, emotional reassurance, and straight talk, while adhering to the highest professional standards as set by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
The Addition of Aesthetics Services
As they’ve aged, a number of Dr. Skorberg’s patients urged her to add aesthetics to the practice. Because she’d delivered their babies and treated them gynecologically, they trusted her surgical skills and medical knowledge (especially compared with the average esthetician). So, starting in 2009, Dr. Skorberg has offered a growing number of in-office aesthetic procedures, including MixTo laser skin resurfacing, Vivace, V-Lase, injectables, and more.
