Breast Care Center

Mid-Columbia Medical Center was the first Oregon hospital, and today is one of only six, to earn national accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) for its Center for Breast Care.

MCMC's program offers a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to breast health that utilizes services, expertise and resources.

By integrating screening, early diagnosis, patient advocacy and treatment, MCMC’s Breast Care Center offers important resources for women along the entire health spectrum.

Kerry Proctor, MD says "I feel a special connection to my patients with breast-related health issues. I enjoy being part of a multi-disciplinary team, with the common goal of delivering the highest level of care."

To earn accreditation, a breast health program must show a commitment to education, research, continuous quality improvement, community outreach and professional education.  It also must provide access to comprehensive breast health resources, including education and support services, screening and diagnostic technology and medical and surgical expertise.

MCMC meets these requirements in many ways, including:

  • Providing access to state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic tools, including digital mammography and stereotactic breast biopsy, as well as advanced treatment options, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy and brachytherapy;
  • Devoting a full-time breast care coordinator to help newly diagnosed breast cancer patients navigate through their options and available resources;
  • Serving as a center for clinical research to investigate promising new options for treating breast cancer;
  • Offering access to highly trained specialists in medical oncology, radiation therapy and breast cancer surgery.
