Cancer Care

Breast Care Center

St. Clair Hospital’s Breast Care Center offers education, early detection, treatment services and the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology in an environment of comfort and convenience.

Our experienced and dedicated surgeons and radiologists read more than 7,000 mammograms annually and they, along with pathologists, nurses, technologists, and other medical personnel, are specially trained in the care and treatment of breast disease. 

In October, St. Clair opened a new, state-of-the-art Breast Care Center at its Outpatient Center, Village Square in Bethel Park.  The 6,000-square-foot suite is configured to maximize patient privacy and efficiency.

The Breast Care Center is home to the most advanced imaging equipment, including MRI, ultrasound and Digital 3D Breast Tomosynthesis. The all-digital center allows women to have their mammograms completed in 30 minutes.

Because having a mammogram is an emotional and often stressful event for women, the center offers a space with a higher level of comfort and aesthetics than what is typically found in medical settings.  There are private dressing rooms, including two that are directly attached to a mammography room.  Even the acoustics were addressed in the facility, with soundproofing on doors to assure confidentiality of conversations with doctors or technicians.  The center features three mammography rooms; two ultrasound rooms; three examination rooms; two mammography reading rooms; three offices; and four consulting rooms.
