Committed to women's health care needs
Located adjacent to the hospital in the Pacific Medical Plaza, we offer a separate dedicated area totally committed to women's health care needs. Services include digital mammography, breast MRI imaging with computer aided detection, stereotactic breast biopsy, osteoporosis DXA screening scans, comprehensive ultrasound services, osteoporosis resource center, and nurse navigator services to help you through each treatment process.
We have results to your doctor quickly. Most reports are sent to your doctor within hours and exam images are securely available for your doctor to review online within minutes of the completion of your exam.
While it is called Women's Health and Imaging Center, we offer services for men as well. We respect our patient's privacy and we offer two separate areas for women and men.
Today's mature women can benefit from education resources and treatment that meet the changing health care needs for this life stage. Clinical and radiology services are available through the Women's Health and Imaging Center with special focus on outpatient and inpatient surgical care, osteoporosis and other postmenopausal procedures. Education directed towards postmenopausal women is also offered. 3D Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is also offered.
Breast cancer can be frightening, and that’s why we provide the very best in compassionate care. Early detection is the key to fighting the disease. Women ages 40 years and older are encouraged to have annual mammogram screenings, as recommended by the American Cancer Society.
In addition to mammography, we are pleased to provide diagnostic ultrasound procedures, as prescribed by your doctor.
An intrinsic part of the assistance we provide is through the Nurse Navigator Program; a program offered at no charge to patients. Our Nurse Navigators help guide, advocate, support and offer hope to all who come to the Women's Health and Imaging Center. Our Nurse Navigators assess each patient's situation and help determine your best possible plan of care.
