Our team of health care professionals provides a range of services from routine screening examinations to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

We work with the radiologists, technologists and other experts at the The Breast Center of Suburban Imaging to utilize the latest technology for breast care and diagnosis.
By organizing our comprehensive diagnostic services in one location, we reduce the time spent in the diagnostic process. This, in turn, helps reduce the anxiety and inconvenience women feel while waiting to find out if they need treatment.
"We are proud of our comprehensive Breast Care Program. Our hospitals, physicians, and clinics are united in their efforts to provide the complete services required for highest quality breast care." Alan Johnson, MD, general surgeon, medical director, Breast Care Program, Mercy Hospital
