The George Washington University Hospital’s New Comprehensive Breast Care Center

GW Breast Care CenterWashington, DC (June 20, 2014) – The George Washington University Hospital is pleased to announce the opening of the new Comprehensive Breast Center at 2300 M St. N.W., 8th Floor in Washington, DC to help meet the growing need for high-tech and comprehensive breast health services. This contemporary comprehensive suite offers one of the most wide-ranging programs in the region for early detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, as well as services for those at high risk.

The new breast care center boasts digital, 3D ultrasound and mammography technology, spacious patient lounges, and private consultation and dressing rooms in a comfortable spa-like setting. The center’s open floor plan and upscale décor of vibrant pink accent walls, floral wall art and upholstered furnishings are a welcomed respite for patients and GW physicians alike. “Now the center reflects the holistic, world-class service of our program, which is unique on many levels,” says Rachel Brem, Director of the GW Comprehensive Center and Vice Chair of Radiology.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide, according to the American Cancer Society. The center hopes to change that as the first and only of its kind in the region to offer an integrated, interdisciplinary program for early detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, as well as risk-based and community-focused services such as the GW Mammovan. The center, Designated a Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology for stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, currently performs 13,000 breast exams annually. All of the center’s services are provided by nationally and internationally recognized physicians who care only for the breast, and includes a team of surgeons who are all women. Patient and nurse navigators are also among the specialists on staff to ensure patients receive individualized care.

“We are very excited about the opening of GW Hospital’s new Comprehensive Breast Center where a long standing mission of providing comprehensive and cutting-edge care to women can continue to flourish,” said Kimberly Russo, Chief Operating Officer at The George Washington University Hospital.
