Is there anything like this for men?

I have no problem with special facilities for women - afterall, they have their own special health needs. But, don't men as well?
Women in Ontario will once again have a hospital to call their own, as well as an expanded birthing centre that will reduce the need for high-risk women to be sent out of the province.

Ontario Health Minister George Smitherman will announce today that Toronto's Women's College Hospital is to be transformed into a leading-edge independent women's health institute, ending its eight-year merger with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Women's high-risk birthing centre and neonatal intensive care unit will move to Sunnybrook and will be expanded in stages over the next five to 10 years, the minister said.

"We're restoring independent governance to Women's College, and we're putting women's health back in women's hands," Smitherman told the Star in an interview yesterday.
