The MaryEllen Locher Breast Center works to maintain the highest level of breast care available by following the stringent guidelines of the American College of Radiology (ACR®), the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC®), and the National Consortium of Breast Centers.
Why choose a center of excellence?
Centers of excellence voluntarily undergo detailed examination of processes, quality indicators, and treatment plans to ensure that they are providing the best possible, most up-to-date care. Most physicians and clinicians practicing at centers of excellence eagerly seek additional training to remain at the forefront of advances in breast care.
The MaryEllen Locher Breast Center consistently meets or exceeds all quality standards of care, meaning you can rest assured the most advanced treatment options are available to you. And, unlike other breast imaging facilities, the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center is an all-inclusive center which allows women to go from a screening mammogram to a complete diagnostic work up in one appointment. While most women will never need the full range of services we offer, the few who do will have peace of mind in knowing they are in good hands. Our multidisciplinary team of professionals provide the best possible care while minimzing the time from finding a breast concern to diagnosis and treatment.
If you are a woman age 40 or better, please call (423) 495-4040 to schedule your screening mammogram.
