Annual mammograms are needed to detect breast cancer in the earliest stages possible in order for us to reduce the number of deaths related to the disease. We're proud to say we've made great strides in breast health by providing digital mammography and a patient-centered approach to decreasing a woman's wait times and anxiety.
The Breast Center at Carolinas HealthCare System Stanly opened its doors in the Yadkin Street Medical Office Building in 2010 and is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiologists. The Center was built with the patient in mind, from the interior design to the addition of a breast health navigator helping individuals through their diagnosis and treatment.
Most recently, our co-medical director and board-certified radiologist, Dr. John Green, created a software application which helps the entire healthcare team streamline appointments, procedures and consultations to decrease a patient's wait times from detection to surgery (if needed). Compared to national averages, Carolinas HealthCare System Stanly's wait time is significantly shorter. Our radiologists, surgeons, technologists and navigators are dedicated to patients and use the software to communicate on a daily basis in order to provide the best possible care.

We believe that no woman should be denied a mammogram because she cannot afford one. That is why we partner with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Stanly Regional Medical Center Foundation to provide free mammograms through Project C.U.R.E. (Caring, Understanding, Reaching out and Educating).To qualify for the program you must be a woman over age 40 with no health insurance.
For more information about this lifesaving screening or to learn more about Project C.U.R.E. call, (704) 984-4667 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
