The Breast Health Center

The increasing rate of breast cancer makes good breast care a priority for all people. The Breast Health Center is dedicated to the prevention, care, and management of breast disease. We provide regular imaging through mammography and ultrasound. We also offer full treatment services provided by a team of physicians from Oncology, General Surgery, and Plastic Surgery, each of whom has expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. In addition to cisgender women, transgender men and non-binary people are advised to speak to our providers about breast cancer screening.

The Breast Health Center has received a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.
