Monmouth Medical Center Announces Relocation of The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Breast Center at Howell

02/15/2017

Long Branch, NJ – To make breast health services more convenient for area patients, Monmouth Medical Center’s Jacqueline M. Wilentz Breast Center in Howell has relocated to The Aldrich Plaza, at 4013 Route 9 North, Suite 25.

One of three satellite locations, the Howell location’s hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Almost one in eight women born in the United States today will develop breast cancer at some time during their lives, according to the National Cancer Institute. The Wilentz Breast Center stresses the importance of regular mammograms and doctor appointments for early detection, when cancer is most treatable. The Center’s services include screening mammography, bone density scanning, general X-ray and a high risk cancer assessment program with genetic counseling and testing on-site.

Recently, the Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center at Monmouth Medical Center successfully achieved a three-year reaccreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. The surveyor commented on “an overall excellent program with dedicated staff delivering robust patient-centered care.” The Wilentz Center is the only NAPBC-accredited program in Monmouth County and the first to be accredited in Ocean County.

The Wilentz Center also achieved status as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence, the highest certification level offered from the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers (NQMBC), and was designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology's (ACR) Commission on Quality and Safety and its Commission on Breast Imaging.
