At Providence, achieving optimal breast health and providing world-class treatment for breast cancer are equal priorities in our continuing goal to improve women’s health. Providence Breast Centers offer access to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging techniques to ensure accurate and timely diagnoses.
All of our breast centers and our Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center and Providence Milwaukie Hospital Mammography Departments are designated Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditation in all of the American College of Radiology's voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.
Our breast centers offer care for women who cannot afford it, through the Oregon Breast and Cervical Cancer Program. This program helps low-income, uninsured and medically underserved women gain access to lifesaving screening programs for early detection of breast and cervical cancers. Each year, approximately 7,000 of these women receive screening services.
Funding for this program is provided by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For more information and eligibility requirements, please call the Breast and Cervical Cancer Program toll-free hotline, 877-255-7070.
In addition, Providence Medford Medical Center offers financial support for the cost of mammograms for women who qualify for assistance, through The Sister Therese Kohles Fund. Please ask the scheduler for information when making your appointment.
