Beaufort Memorial Announces New Name for Women's Imaging Services

  Beaufort Memorial Breast Health Center name reflects National Breast Center of Excellence accreditation and expanded services

The spa-like outpatient center where many Beaufort-area women receive their annual mammograms has a new name: Beaufort Memorial Breast Health Center.

 The name change was prompted by the center’s recent designation as an Accredited Breast Center by the American College of Surgeons’ National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) following a rigorous onsite evaluation and review of the hospital’s facilities, protocols and performance.  

Beaufort Memorial is among 10 breast centers in South Carolina to have earned the designation. In addition, the center was named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology for meeting the highest standards in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound.  

Accredited breast centers must offer patients coordinated, comprehensive care, access to a full range of state-of-the-art services and information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options.  

The Beaufort Memorial Breast Health Center offers a variety of services, including digital 3-D mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, bone density screenings, patient care coordination and a high-risk breast program.  

“We have an outstanding program to meet the comprehensive breast health needs of women in our community,” said general surgeon Dr. Perry Burrus, BMH’s Breast Program Leader. “With the NAPBC accreditation, patients can rest assured they will receive the highest quality of care right here in Beaufort. They don’t need to go anywhere else.”
