THE MAIMONIDES BREAST CENTER:
HOPE, STRENGTH AND LIFE FOR WOMEN IN BROOKLYN AND BEYOND
With a population of 2.6 million people, more than half of whom are female, the borough of Brooklyn is America’s fourth largest city. Yet until Maimonides opened the Breast Center, women in Brooklyn coping with a breast cancer diagnosis were obliged to travel from provider to provider, with many leaving the borough for treatment. Fourteen years ago, we created Brooklyn’s first fully accredited, full-service Breast Center in a beautiful free-standing location just a short distance from our main campus. Led by our Chief of Surgery, Dr. Patrick Borgen, and a team of exceptionally skilled and dedicated physicians and staff, our Breast Center and Breast Imaging Center of Excellence make breast cancer screenings, diagnosis, treatment, counseling, and a full array of support services available all under one roof.
The Breast Center sees about 23,000 patient visits and treats approximately 600 women per year for breast cancer, largely through satisfied patient referrals. Maimonides partners with the NYS Cancer Services Program to provide free mammograms and other breast screenings to uninsured and under-insured women. These screenings cover women age 40 and older, as well as women under 40 who have a high risk of breast cancer.
THE BREAST CENTER SAVES LIVES EVERY DAY WITH A LEVEL OF CARE AND EMPATHY THAT HAS BECOME LEGENDARY. OUR NUMEROUS PATIENTS ATTEST TO THIS WITH REMARKABLE ELOQUENCE AND EVERY ONE OF THEM IS AN INSPIRATIONAL ROLE MODEL. IT IS THEIR COURAGE AND RESILIENCE THAT WE HONOR AT PINK RUNWAY – THE FASHION SHOW WHERE BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS TRIUMPH!
Mammograms save lives! Don’t let fear of COVID-19 keep you from getting yours. Our facilities are clean and safe for patients and staff alike. To schedule a screening or evaluation with a Maimonides Breast Specialist, call 718-765-2550 or click below to request an appointment:
