Breast Care Center

What can you expect from the region's best breast care center?

Start with comprehensive breast health services that continually exceed national best practice standards, confidence in knowing you are in skilled hands and peace of mind that you are getting the best care possible. And there's more...

At the Breast Care Center at St. Joseph Hospital, we are reaching out to the entire region to promote breast health for all women, in particular those at higher risk for breast cancer.

You'll meet with expert clinicians who employ the latest technologies, like 3D Mammograms or Tomosynthesis, to find cancer early when it is most treatable. You'll have the opportunity to sit down with our on-site radiologist to discuss test results without a long waiting period and get referrals to the resources and specialists you may need for further testing and treatment. The best part is they are all right here in a comfortable, convenient setting where the attention is focused on you, the patient.

At the Breast Care Center, the region's first comprehensive center for breast health, you'll find these services all under one roof:

  • Physician-directed, patient-focused care
  • Board-certified radiologist on site
  • Coordinated scheduling for all appointments
  • Personalized diagnostic evaluation and follow-up consultation
  • Timely test results - in some instances on the same day
  • A specially trained breast health nurse to provide breast health education, case management, advocacy and support
  • Nutrition, psychosocial and other counseling and support programs
  • Access to a continuum of breast health screening, diagnostic and treatment services
  • Same-day mammograms. For same day or evening availability, call the Breast Care Center at (603) 595-5700 between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday.

  • 3D Tomosynthesis Breast Screening Technology

    The Breast Care Center at St. Joseph Hospital is one of the first women’s centers in New Hampshire to offer 3D Mammography, also called Tomosynthesis, for breast cancer screening. Breast tomosynthesis helps radiologists see breast tissue better by decreasing the effect of overlapping areas.

  • Breast Cancer Survivorship Program - Your Journey Forward

    With progress in treating cancer comes a new and unique challenge-ensuring the long-term health of cancer survivors. At St. Joseph Hospital, we know that the end of treatment is not the end of the cancer experience.

  • Diagnostic & Treatment Services

    For many women, the potential risk of breast cancer can lead to long, difficult periods of worrying, waiting and uncertainty. That's why The Breast Care Center at St. Joseph Hospital, the region's first comprehensive center, coordinates all areas of breast health under one roof.

  • Education, Support & Counseling Services

    The Breast Care Center offers support and educational programs dedicated to providing women with the latest information and resources they need.

  • Breast Care Center Team

    Our Breast Care Center team is led by a board-certified radiologist, oncologists, surgeons, and includes two specially trained breast health nurses and an operations technologist.

  • Deb, Breast Cancer Survivor

    Deb Keenan's breast cancer journey began 10 years ago when her doctor sent her for a routine mammogram.

  • Jane, Breast Cancer Survivor

    In 2009, Jane's routine annual mammogram showed an irregularity. She called the St. Joseph Hospital Breast Care Center for an x-ray, an ultrasound-and later, a biopsy which confirmed the life-changing news. At age 48, Jane was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer.
