New Lenox, IL - Silver Cross Opens New Women's Center

Silver Cross Hospital
opened the new Center for Women's Health Oct. 19 at the Silver Cross Replacement Hospital campus.

The center is the first in the region to provide an advanced level of diagnostics coupled with specialized care for women in one convenient location.

Patients will have the opportunity to experience the latest breast cancer testing available - full field digital mammography. Diagnostic breast ultrasound and breast biopsies will also be available.

The Silver Cross Center for Women's Health features a high-tech bone densitometry machine for osteoperosis screening, and also will offer a Baseline Cardiac Screening which includes a 12-lead EKG; measurements of cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure; a health history; and consultation with a cardiac nurse to review results and answer questions.

In addition to state-of-the-art diagnostic services, Silver Cross has partnered with the American Cancer Society to create an I Can Cope Breast Cancer Support Group and the I Matter Screening Program.
