New Comprehensive Breast Health Center at Winthrop

At Winthrop-University Hospital, breast health is more than just an annual mammogram and a recommendation for regular self breast exams.

Well beyond these basic yet essential services, Winthrop provides high quality, comprehensive breast care in a supportive environment.

From routine screenings using the latest diagnostic imaging to minimally invasive biopsy techniques and state-of- the-art treatments for breast cancer, Winthrop offers a full-range of breast services designed to support a woman’s every need.
