Women’s Imaging Center

Comprehensive breast health services in one welcoming & convenient location

The Women’s Imaging Center is one of many steps we are taking to create a certified breast health program that brings together a comprehensive solution for women’s breast health, from prevention and diagnosis through to treatment and follow-up care.

This includes a dedicated team of breast health specialists including board certified radiologists who are experts in their field with years of experience reading complex images and spotting abnormalities.

At the center of the care team is a breast nurse navigator, who can help patients navigate the healthcare system and encourage them through their journey. The navigator takes a proactive approach to guiding patients through and around barriers such as cost, fear and misinformation surrounding breast health disease, prevention and treatment.

By developing this program with an expert team of providers, we are providing the most innovative treatments to help keep the women in our community healthy and breast cancer free.

A soothing and compassionate environment

The Women’s Imaging Center features a spa-like, tranquil setting for women who will feel pampered immediately upon arrival. They will be greeted by a warm and welcoming staff and provided a comfortable white robe.
