Shimberg Breast Center
At St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital, we understand that maintaining good breast health is a vital issue for women. This includes obtaining regular and accurate screenings, performing proper self exams, maintaining optimum nutrition to help prevent cancer, and understanding the role family genetics plays in your health.
We also understand what a woman experiences when she first learns she has breast cancer: the medical and psychological as well as the emotional effects of this frightening diagnosis. You want accurate information, timely and state-of-the-art treatment, and compassionate care. Our Shimberg Breast Center has earned national accreditation, assuring you of exceptional care.
