The Rochester Regional Health Breast Center has opened its new flagship location on the Linden Oaks Medical Campus in Penfield.
The expansion is the first phase of a $4.5 million project to expand cancer services at Linden Oaks and it will greatly improve access to care for patients with breast cancer and other breast conditions.
"More people than ever are turning to us for the breast care they need, and we’re making sure we have the capacity to keep seeing patients quickly, in an appropriately calming space while delivering the highest standard of care,” explained Breast Center Executive Director Lori Medeiros, MD.
The newly-expanded breast center is in the 20 Hagen Drive building on the Linden Oaks Medical Campus, which is also home to one of Rochester Regional Health’s Lipson Cancer Institute locations. By 2021, the $4.5 million expansion project will turn the building into a complete multi-disciplinary destination for patients with cancer. This includes the adoption of many cutting-edge technologies in radiation and medical oncology as well as breast surgery.
Patients with cancer often need to see several different specialists,” Medeiros continued. “Some of our patients come here from up to a three-hour drive away. We want them, and all of our patients, to be able to see all the specialists they need in one trip."
The Rochester Regional Health Breast Center also has offices at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, Rochester General Hospital and Unity Hospital. It was the first program in New York State to receive the coveted Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence by the National Consortium of Breast Centers.
Patients can find the Rochester Regional Health Breast Center's Linden Oaks location at 20 Hagen Drive, Suite 320 in Penfield.
