Breast Cancer Care
At UnityPoint Health – Central Illinois, our team provides comprehensive care to patients fighting against breast disease. From prevention and diagnosis, to treatment and recovery, our team supports patients every step of the way.
Our Breast Health Center and High-Risk Breast Clinic allow us to take advantage of our best weapon against breast cancer: early detection. At these clinics, our team offers services including routine screening mammograms, or personalized risk assessments to help patients take control of their breast health.
Your Dedicated Team
We know that breast cancer is more than a medical diagnosis. Most of us have seen family members battle this illness, and know the impact it can have both physically and mentally.
Our nurse navigators, and licensed counselor work with your other providers to take the confusion and fear out of the situation. We will not only treat your disease, but guide you through your journey with cancer.
Throughout your diagnostic workup a breast imaging navigator will work with you to coordinate appointments and testing. Upon diagnosis, you will begin working closely with a breast cancer nurse navigator.
