Breast Care Program at UPMC Northwest

The Breast Care Program at UPMC Northwest provides residents in the Venango County area with state-of-the-art breast care that is conveniently located close to home.

Following the guidelines established by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Cancer Centers (NAPBC), the breast care program creates a seamless experience for patients, beginning with a streamlined referral process.

Multidisciplinary Approach

The multidisciplinary breast care team at UPMC Northwest includes board-certified radiologists, an interventional radiologist, general surgeons, pathologists, medical and radiation oncologists, and a fellowship-trained breast surgeon. This team works together with the patient’s primary care physician (PCP) to coordinate the best care and treatment options available.

The team includes a breast care navigator — a nurse specially trained to help move patients more swiftly through the diagnosis and treatment process — who serves as the primary link between the patient and breast care team.​
