A Little About Crescent Women’s Medical Group

Crescent Women’s Medical Group, Inc. was officially established on August 1, 1989. The founding physicians’ goal was to establish the premier women’s health care group in southwest Ohio through being committed to quality care, service, education, and teamwork.

Currently the practice consists of Drs. Chandra Gravely, MD, who joined Crescent in February, 1997, and Cindy Hansel, MD, who came to Crescent shortly thereafter in July, 1997.

In order to serve a diverse set of women’s health needs, the corporation employed its first midwife and welcomed Rhonda Whitten, CNM in May, 1997 to complete our current group.

“committed to quality care, service, education, and teamwork.”
