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.
