Breast Care at HHC
Each year, we perform more than 70,000 mammograms. Breast cancer treatment is most successful if we diagnose the disease early, so we encourage women to undergo regular screenings. Every May, we conduct a breast cancer awareness campaign, stressing the importance of regular mammograms and early cancer detection. Join our mammogram campaign and dedicate your mammogram to someone special. Learn more about our mammogram campaign.
We use an advanced mammogram system that:
- Improves physicians' ability to diagnose breast cancer
- Shortens exam time
- Maximizes comfort
