St. Joseph’s Hospital Mammography Services are accredited by the American College of Radiology – an honor awarded only to facilities that achieve high practice standards. You’ll be cared for by specially trained and certified technologists and radiologists who average more than 20 years’ experience in interpreting mammography images.
What's the benefit of a hospital-based breast care program?
The Breast Care Program offered through St. Joseph’s Hospital gives you the advantage of an integrated, multi-disciplinary breast care team of radiologists, pathologists, technologists and breast surgeons who collaborate at one convenient location for faster diagnosis. It’s a coordinated approach to breast care, for both well care and cancer care. To ensure the care you receive is the most comprehensive it can be, the team also collaborates with family practice physicians, gynecologists, oncologists and plastic surgeons.
What if I need breast surgery?
If you need surgery, your care is coordinated with board-certified breast surgeons. With early detection, most women are candidates for a lumpectomy, where the surgeon removes only the lump and a margin of tissue around it, sparing the breast.
