The Center for Breast Imaging and Diagnosis

We are pleased to announce the opening of the new Center for Breast Imaging and Diagnosis at St. Joseph Hospital. Designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, the Center provides screening and diagnostic services throughout a woman's life.

The new Imaging Center expands services offered through The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment (CCPT) at St. Joseph Hospital. The advanced imaging and diagnostic technology enables our dedicated breast radiologists to find cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage. Should further treatment be required, patients have access to the CCPT's team of expert breast surgeons, oncologists and support staff. Our specialized focus and team approach ensures the best possible outcome for our patients.

Equally important is our continued emphasis on patient dignity and comfort. From the soothing colors to spacious exam rooms and private consultation rooms, our new center reflects our value of Dignity in a compassionate, respectful environment.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Mammography is a simple, yet lifesaving test. We encourage every woman over 40 to make this important investment in her health and well-being, for herself and her loved ones.
