Ruth Goldenberg, MD

Women's Health, Napa/Solano Area

“I love being able to do new things that improve care and make a difference in women’s lives.”

When it comes to leading a large department with four different locations, no one does it better than Ruth Goldenberg, MD.

Under her leadership, the department has seen significant improvement in virtually every measure, from MPS scores to access, quality and morale.

Dr. Goldenberg supports innovations suggested by department and staff members and promotes new models of care such as telephone appointment visits and secure messaging. She’s established guidelines to route certain low-demand procedures to colleagues who have developed more expertise in those areas.

An excellent communicator, she explains the reasons behind changes and makes sure everyone has the opportunity to provide feedback on new projects and initiatives.

She champions many programs to help ensure the health and welfare of women throughout the community. She helped launch a program to screen all patients for domestic violence and her support of the Sexual Assault Response Team helped make the medical center a safe refuge for abused women.
