The Breast Care Service (BCS) is a dedicated program offering patient education, evaluation services, individualized treatment plans, follow-up care and support services for patients with breast health problems or newly diagnosed breast cancer.
BCS nurse navigators organize and expedite care for women with abnormal breast problems or a known diagnosis of breast cancer. Most women are scheduled to see a physician within 48 hours of the initial phone call to the BCS. Our multidisciplinary team of breast health specialists meet weekly to discuss all new breast cancer cases, provide an evidence based expert, consensus opinion from the team and develop an individualized plan of care specific to each patient's diagnosis.
The Breast Health Outreach Program (BHOP) is a unique program providing essential breast health services in a 21-county East Tennessee region. Free customized classes focus on the risks of breast cancer and the benefits of early detection through breast self awareness, clinical breast exams and mammograms. Classes are offered on nights, weekends or anytime that is convenient for participants. BHOP also provides access to digital mammograms on the UT Medical Center’s state-of-the-art mobile mammography unit. Providing screenings where women live, work and worship removes barriers such as time off from work, childcare and transportation issues that often prevent women from being screened.
