Breast Health Center

Dedicated exclusively to breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and the management and surveillance of pre-existing cancer, the Breast Center provides a comprehensive approach to Breast Health, from breast pain to breast cancer. Patients can expect the highest level of accuracy in diagnostic care, including mammogram results within 24 hours. More importantly, if anything suspicious is found, patients will receive follow-up testing and expert consultation within days – not weeks.

There are several risk factors for breast cancer, some you can control with your lifestyle, but others are inherent. Knowing your personal risk can be confusing. CHI Health offers cancer genetic education and testing that can determine your risk of developing breast cancer.

Less worry. Less waiting.

The Breast Center expedites the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer by offering technology and staff specifically dedicated to breast care and cancer. Our advanced digital mammography technology provides the highest level of accuracy for even the smallest tumors. But more importantly, if anything suspicious is found, we’ll make sure that you receive all follow-up testing – including a biopsy, if necessary – within a matter of days.

For those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, they meet with our surgeons for consultation, treatment, and follow-up within the Breast Center. Care is coordinated with the multi-disciplinary team of cancer specialists including Radiology, Pathology, Medical Oncology, and Radiation Oncology.

Breast Cancer Team 

The Breast Center, with locations at Lakeside Hospital and Midlands Hospital, is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner, fellowship-trained breast Radiologists, and Surgeons who are dedicated to and have special training in breast care. If cancer is detected, patients of the Breast Health Center are also offered the opportunity to partner with a Nurse Navigator. A Nurse Navigator is an oncology-certified nurse who is available to guide patients through the entire process of diagnosis and treatment. Meet the breast care team.
