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.
The multidisciplinary breast care team at UPMC Northwest includes board-certified radiologists, an interventional radiologist, general surgeons, pathologists, and medical and radiation oncologists. 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.
