Center of Excellence
Heritage Valley Women’s Health Center is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Screening mammography has proven to be the most effective tool identified for the early detection of breast cancer. Screening mammograms are recommended for women 40 years of age and older as well as younger women who are at special risk for developing breast cancer. Heritage Valley BreastCare’s seven locations provide full-field digital mammography for screening and diagnostic mammograms. Additionally, the BreastCare program supports self-requesting so that you can choose a date and time for your screening mammogram that works with your schedule.
When a mammogram and testing uncovers an issue, it can be a difficult time, filled with anxiety. Heritage Valley’s Breast Care Navigator is a specially trained nurse that works with patients in this situation to efficiently coordinate follow-up care, timely diagnosis, and treatment of patients with a variety of breast abnormalities.
Heritage Valley’s BreastCare program provides a simple, diagnostic pathway led by the Breast Care Navigator to follow the patient from screening imaging through minimally invasive biopsy techniques and ultimately if needed, coordinated follow-up care. Follow-up treatments are available within the Heritage Valley Health System and include surgical consultation, medical and surgical oncology consultation and treatment, referrals to support programs, and other services determined to be appropriate for the patient’s circumstance.
