americas best breast centers 2018

Greenwich, CT (July 31, 2018) – For the fifth consecutive year, Greenwich Hospital has received the 2018 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Breast Centers.

“We believe every woman deserves the finest breast care,” said Barbara Ward, MD, medical director of the Breast Center at the Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Greenwich Hospital Campus. “Our team is committed to providing state-of-the-art cancer care in a compassionate setting that addresses both the physical and emotional needs of our patients.”

The Women’s Choice Award is given to breast centers that have met the high standards of the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and carry the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence seal from the American College of Radiology. The evidence-based designation is the only award that identifies the country’s best breast centers based on robust criteria that considers female patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.

As part of the Yale New Haven Health’s Smilow Cancer Hospital network, Greenwich Hospital offers a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art cancer care services, including three-dimensional mammography; advanced medical, surgical and radiation therapy options; ongoing clinical trials; patient and family support groups; and survivorship programs.

After skin cancer, breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer among American women, according to the American Cancer Society. One in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.
