Providence Breast Centers offer access to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging techniques to ensure accurate and timely diagnoses. The Ruth J. Spear Breast Center has been designated a Breast Imaging Center 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 the American College of Radiology's voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.
Providence offers 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.
