The Southcoast Breast Center offers a whole new way of getting answers. If you have an abnormal mammogram, our breast care navigators will guide you through the entire diagnosis process, step-by-step, so you can get the answers and support you need without stressful delays.
Combine that with Southcoast Breast Imaging Center's 12 digital mammography sites and three advanced diagnostic locations — all accredited as Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology — and it's an experience like no other in our region.
The breast center has received a three-year full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.
