Early diagnosis, detecting and treating breast cancer take expert medical judgment and experience. Few medical professionals are more experienced than the nationally recognized team at Lima Memorial Women’s Health Center. The Women's Health Center is designated an American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, holding accreditation in mammography, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast MRI.
The Women’s Health Center at Lima Memorial Medical Park is a leader in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Our multidisciplinary team—often including board-certified medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, plastic surgeons, mammographers, patient navigators and highly trained nurses—consult with each other on the treatment of every patient diagnosed with breast cancer. In addition all patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer are connected with a patient navigator to guide them through their treatment journey.
The center is known for its expertise in breast cancer diagnosis. At the Women’s Health Center, screening mammograms are evaluated twice: once by a radiologist physician and again with new, innovative computer-aided detection (CAD) technology, including 3-D capabilities. In addition the Women's Health Center offers 3D mammography. This technology finds up to 40% more invasive breast cancers and is able to detect cancers smaller in size at an earlier stage.
Lima Memorial Women’s Health Center is also a leader in breast cancer prevention, both in the community and nationwide. We were an active participant in the National Cancer Institute's STAR trials, one of the largest breast cancer prevention studies ever conducted. Women throughout the community have access to breast health education, consultations and support groups provided by the center.
The Women's Health Center works closely with Cancer Institute to encourage regular mammograms for women at risk for breast cancer. In addition, we offer osteoporosis and bone health screening services to uninsured or underinsured women and men in our community to allow for earlier diagnosis and treatment.
