Quantum Women's Health was founded in 2021 by Jill Gustafson, CNM. After working as a certified nurse-midwife in multiple group practice settings, Jill came to realize that the quality of care that her patients need requires a different sort of structure than is found in most medical settings. Patients in larger practices are often put in a rotating assembly line of multiple doctors or providers for quick, impersonal check-ups, without any focus on holistic health or continuity of care. This often results in patients being treated more like a number than a person, and valuable aspects of healing (such as time, attention, and understanding) are lost.
Quantum Women's Health was crafted to be a locally-owned solo-practitioner clinic, where Jill is able to spend the time that her patients need to heal. Women's health is an intimate business. There are usually multiple intersecting factors impacting our sexual or reproductive health. Our patients require enough time with their provider to properly explain their story, receive a comprehensive exam, and to be able to weigh their diagnostic and treatment options. At Quantum Women's Health, we strive to create a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere where our patients are supported to discuss intimate, challenging, or painful aspects of their health. We also strive to provide our patients with unobstructed access to their provider via email or phone calls outside of their appointment. We know that when patients feel supported during appointments and have better access to their provider afterward, they actually get better much more often.
