Center brings breast imaging services under one roof

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Comprehensive Breast Center at the Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center opened to patients on Monday, Feb. 13. This closes the second phase of construction at the Henry Cancer Center. 

The comprehensive breast center (CBC) will greatly improve access to breast care services, and the highly integrated nature of the center will result in enhanced patient experience at Henry Cancer Center appointments. The physical footprint of the CBC allows Geisinger providers the ability to collaborate between breast surgery and breast imaging in patient care.

“The comprehensive breast center aligns with our goal to provide a differentiated, convenient and highly personalized experience for our patients,” said Ron Beer, chief administrative officer of Geisinger’s northeast region. “Our patients will no longer have to travel to multiple locations for imaging, diagnostics and treatment. The breast center puts the patient in the middle of the care process and brings services to them — the way it should be.”

The center adds 4,400 square feet to the already completed 92,150-square-foot, four-story cancer center. The CBC will offer state-of-the-art breast imaging for screening and diagnostic studies such as mammography, tomosynthesis and ultrasound, as well as advanced imaging, such as breast MRI. Breast surgical services will include clinical breast exams, evaluation and treatment of benign and malignant breast conditions and breast cancer risk assessment and treatment including chemoprevention. Biopsy procedures, like minimally invasive diagnostic core biopsies, will also be performed.

Patients going to the comprehensive breast center can use the imaging center entrance and follow signs to the CBC. The Goodness Bar offers smoothies, and the Hydra Health gift shop can supply any cancer-related products patients or visitors may need during appointments. 

The opening of the breast center reinforces Geisinger’s pledge to offer the best-quality care to everyone it serves.

Phase three of the Henry Cancer Center expansion will start later this year. Plans include increased radiation oncology services.
