The Breast Care Center at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital is now offering extended early morning hours with appointments starting at 7 a.m.  These appointments offer convenience to women who want to schedule a screening before the work day begins. 

The Breast Care Center's hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the last appointment scheduled at 4:15 p.m. Patients are provided with a report from the reading radiologist before they leave, so there is no waiting for a phone call hours or days later.  If more treatment is needed, the patient’s physician is contacted promptly with our recommendations.

The center’s Selenia digital mammography system has the capability to detect breast cancer earlier in more women than the film mammography available at many hospitals. Digital mammography provides an important tool for early detection, which is the best hope for successful treatment and recovery.  

To make an appointment, call 251-415-1660.  The Breast Care Center is located in the Imaging Department on the first floor of USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital.
