Breast Cancer

Easing the Pain of Breast Care

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer (excluding skin cancers) in women, accounting for nearly one out of every three forms of cancer diagnosed in women in America. That's why early detection of cancer and a breast healthy lifestyle are so important. To help women avoid and overcome the pain of breast problems, Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers has created the Comprehensive Breast Health Center.

LCM's Comprehensive Breast Health Center was recently awarded a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to a select few centers across the country 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.

Learn more about the care a women can receive at Little Company of Mary's NAPBC-accredited center. 

From fast and accurate cancer screenings and advanced treatments to our multidisciplinary team of experts and comprehensive Integrative Therapy programs, our center is dedicated to being as convenient as possible in every way.
