Mount Sinai Medical Center will kick off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Thursday, October 2, with the inauguration of a beautiful, new Women’s Center in Aventura. The Mount Sinai Aventura Fl Women’s Center will feature a spa-like environment coupled with advanced diagnostic technology and highly- skilled radiologists. The center will offer greater patient privacy, comfort and convenience while providing excellent medical care.
Located at 2845 Aventura Boulevard, the Mount Sinai Aventura Women’s Center will offer sophisticated medical expertise, as well as advanced diagnostic and treatment options.
The center will provide a variety of screening and diagnostic services, including mammograms, breast ultrasound and ultrasound- guided procedures using advanced digital imaging technology. Pelvic and obstetric ultrasounds and bone densitometry with fat absorption detection capabilities will also be available, as well as computerized tomography (CT), open MRI scans and all forms of X-rays. The center is being built with an emphasis on privacy and comfort, with a dedicated waiting area and dressing room for breast imaging patients, as well as a coffee bar and refreshment area. It will feature a warm, inviting setting designed to put patients at ease during their visit.
Mount Sinai offers comprehensive breast care at two convenient locations, Miami Beach and Aventura. Together, the two centers provide a full range of screening, diagnostic, counseling and support services to combat breast cancer, the second leading cause of death among women. Mount Sinai’s Lila and Harold Menowitz Comprehensive Breast Center in Miami Beach was the first facility in Florida to receive accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. It also is recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
In an effort to further provide the women in our community with quality, comprehensive care, Mount Sinai has also developed a Women’s Centered Care program, which consolidates the various clinicians involved in women’s care, all under one roof. This approach to treatment and services sets Mount Sinai apart from other facilities in the region. A multidisciplinary team of specially trained physicians who understand the health care needs of women work together to optimize patients’ health and well-being, and coordinate care across specialties.
In addition, a patient navigator is available to assist patients in accessing any needed services.
