With a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week, the medical staff celebrated the new Inova Schar Cancer Institute – Peterson Family Breast Center, located on the hospital’s main campus in Lansdowne. The 3,800-square-foot suite is designed to complement the hospital’s existing accredited breast program and provide women with convenient and comprehensive care close to home.
The Peterson Family Breast Center features state-of-the-art detection and diagnostic imaging services, breast navigation, genetic counseling and the Life with Cancer program, all in one location. Life with Cancer is a not-for-profit program that provides free support and education for cancer patients and their families. That support comes in the form of fitness and wellness classes, counseling and therapy, regardless of where the patients are treated.
Additionally, fellowship-trained breast radiologists will read all mammograms. The Breast Center complements Inova Loudoun Hospital’s existing accredited breast program and patient’s care is integrated with the national experts at the Inova Schar Cancer Institute.
The breast cancer center was made possible by a $1 million donation from the Peterson family.READ MORE
