The Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center has earned a reputation for its dedication to helping patients fight and beat breast cancer on all fronts. Using the latest diagnostics and most advanced technologies & treatments available, our board-certified physicians are known for their experience and expertise in breast cancer care. We have created an integrated network of imaging centers and our hospital to create world class breast care in a convenient setting for our patients.
Breast Interdisciplinary Cancer Program
Due to the complex nature of breast cancer and its treatment, JFK Medical Center seeks to create a patient-centered program for women and their families going through breast cancer. Because 1% of all breast cancer is diagnosed in men, we will also have a specially designed approach to male breast cancer. Patients will have access to innovative treatments, clinical trials, and other supportive services. Our mission is to care for the whole patient, not just the disease.
The focus of our care is patients with active breast problems, elevated risk of developing breast cancer, a new or past diagnosis of breast cancer. Patients will require a referral from their OB-Gyn or primary caregiver. Physicians or nurse practitioners may make referrals. We will assist Breast Institute patients, as well as patients with non-surgical breast problems, in the coordination of their care with other caregivers.
