The Elliot Breast Health Center (EBHC) is a unique collaboration that ensures comprehensive care to the women in our community. Good breast health care starts with you, the patient, getting your yearly mammogram and doing a monthly breast exam. Statistics show this increases a women’s chance for finding breast cancer at its earliest stages. Early detection has never been so promising. Our center offers state of the art 3-D mammography and radiologic technologists specialized in mammography.
