Breast Care Coordinator

Our services are provided by a cancer care team that not only understands the importance of comprehensive support, but also values each patient’s individual needs.

Working in partnership with you, we guide you through every step of your breast health journey. We support you during risk assessments as well as regular, age-appropriate exams, yearly mammograms and follow-up appointments.

The Breast Care Coordinator is a nurse who will answer your questions about breast health and will offer breast cancer education and support to newly-diagnosed patients.

The coordinator will work with you as your personal guide to help you navigate through your health care options and ensure you have all of the resources available to help you make informed decisions. These services are provided at no charge.

No matter what kind of breast care you need, you will find it at Providence. We are equipped with the latest technologies and offer a wide range of state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic capabilities.
