Adventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital to Open Breast Center in White Oak

Takoma Park, MDAdventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital is pleased to announce the opening of its new, comprehensive women’s breast center in White Oak, providing the latest advances in breast care and breast cancer support services.

The Adventist HealthCare White Oak Breast Center offers women in Montgomery County access to a state-of-the-art facility with a team of experienced physicians, a breast navigator, technologists and staff, skilled in providing high quality, specialized services focused on breast cancer prevention and early intervention.
A comprehensive, coordinated approach provides patients with access to advanced imaging services such as 3D mammography, specialized services including breast ultrasound, and minimally invasive biopsies with onsite breast surgery consultation, all in one convenient and comfortable setting.

“Our goal is to offer the highest level of breast services and support in an environment that truly caters to the needs of women,” said Cynthia Plate, MD, medical director of the Adventist HealthCare White Oak Breast Center. “Through same-day breast consultations and biopsies, and advanced treatment options, our team is dedicated to keeping patients informed and reassured at every stage of their breast care.”

The Adventist HealthCare White Oak Breast Center will host a ribbon cutting event on Tuesday, Oct. 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in advance of its grand opening, which will take place in November, 2014. The event serves to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month and support efforts to increase awareness of available services in the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. The American Cancer Society encourages all women age 40 and older to have an annual mammogram for early detection and more effective treatment.
