New breast center opens with flourish

The newly finished Breast Center at Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis opened its doors last month with a flourish. Less than a week after it officially opened, the 6,000-square-foot facility was opened to the public with the Oct. 7 “Mammothon.” The one-day event accommodated 198 patients seeking convenient mammogram screenings for breast cancer.

The center, which is attached to the Franciscan St. Francis Cancer Center now under construction, enhances the quality of care, comfort and privacy for patients. By design, the facility offers patients a warmer, more welcoming environment while also reducing wait times for screenings and procedures.

Privacy is of paramount importance highlighted by separate waiting rooms and private changing areas for screening and diagnostic patients. The Franciscan St. Francis Breast Center provides a full range of preventive, diagnostic and treatment services, including:

Digital mammography (screening and diagnostic)
• Computer aided detection
Breast ultrasound
• Breast MRI
• Stereotactic and ultrasound-guided core biopsies

The Cancer Center provides personalized patient care with a breast nurse navigator, who coordinates each patient’s journey from diagnosis.

To reach the Breast Center, call (317) 528-8555 to schedule procedures. If your physician has given you a written order, please have it available when scheduling your appointment.
