Breast cancer screenings
Our hospital has been recognized by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for achieving the highest level of image quality and patient safety in ultrasound imaging and mammography. Our women's care program offers digital mammograms, 3D mammograms and breast ultrasounds to screen patients for breast cancer. We value our patient's comfort throughout the process, which is why we use soft screening pads during breast imaging exams.
If a mass or other abnormality is found during imaging, we perform a biopsy to determine if cancer is present or not. If a breast cancer diagnosis is made, our patients have access to extensive chemotherapy treatments, infusion services and breast surgical procedures.
Our cancer treatments
In addition to specialized screenings, our physicians use laboratory testings and imaging services to detect cancer in its earliest stages—when it's most treatable. If a cancer diagnosis is confirmed, our skilled cancer care team provides a range of advanced treatment options in a newly remodeled, warm and inviting area.
