Our Care Philosophy

We believe all women deserve a better healthcare experience.

While the healthcare industry has innovated at a rapid pace, women’s healthcare has fallen behind. Health indicators for U.S. women, particularly during pregnancy and childbirth, are worse than in other developed countries. Liv by Advantia Health is changing that.

On our mission to transform healthcare for all women, we’ve designed truly integrated care.

You should be able to get help with anxiety, pregnancy and abnormal thyroid levels under the same roof, from the highest-quality providers. Doctors should listen and understand your health needs — mental and physical. And technology can help make the whole experience better, end-to-end.

Your health doesn’t have to be so hard to manage.

We’ve carefully considered every detail of your healthcare journey to ensure your experience is comfortable, convenient, and collaborative, every step of the way. No more wasting time in stark waiting rooms or filling out unnecessary forms. Liv by Advantia Health is the next generation of healthcare: an innovative care model that puts women at the center, making it easy to start out healthy and stay that way.
