Woman's Center Services

At the Woman’s Center of Community Howard Regional Health, we understand that the needs of every woman are as unique as the woman herself. Accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the Woman’s Center gives women the special attention they deserve and the opportunity to be more informed about their bodies and their health.

Breast screenings

The Woman’s Center tailors its services to each woman’s individual needs and features breast self-examination instruction, digital mammography, diagnostic breast ultrasounds, and stereotactic core biopsies.

Self-examination

The Woman’s Center offers free, private self-examination instruction to any patient upon request.

Digital mammography

A mammogram is a digital x-ray of the breast. Mammography can locate a breast lump smaller than a pea, one that cannot be felt by hand for as long as seven years. All of our radiologic technologists are certified in mammography through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound uses sound waves to create a detailed picture of the breast. By itself, ultrasound is not considered a screening procedure, but it may be requested by your doctor or recommended by the radiologist who reviewed the mammogram.

Screening recommendations

Mammography: Annually starting at age 40
Clinical breast exam: Every three years for women 20-39 and annually for women 40 and older
Breast self-exam: Monthly starting at age 20

Stereotactic breast biopsy

Stereotactic breast biopsy represents a new way to precisely and accurately sample tissue from a suspected abnormality found on a mammogram and is an alternative to a surgical procedure for diagnosing breast cancer. For more information, call the outpatient office at 765-452-0808, extension 30.

Osteoporosis screening

The Woman’s Center is equipped with Dexa Tablescan, which provides an accurate measurement of bone density via a painless six-minute procedure. These tests are typically covered by Medicare and most insurance.

Insurance

The Woman’s Center attempts to keep preventive care within financial reach of all women. If you do not have health insurance, call the outpatient office at 765-452-0808, extension 30, for information about the free Mammography Program offered through the Community Howard Regional Health Foundation and other financial assistance programs.

Appointments

Mammography, stereotactic core biopsy, other exams, and bone densities are done in the convenient, private setting of the Woman’s Center outpatient facility located at 2201 West Boulevard, Kokomo. Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 7:40 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. Please call the Centralized Scheduling department at 765-864-8929 or toll-free 866-864-8929 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to schedule a time convenient for you.
