COOKEVILLE – The Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) has been recognized as a Pink Ribbon facility by Hologic Inc, a developer, manufacturer and supplier of diagnostic and medical imaging systems.
Pink Ribbon facilities offer 3-D breast tomosynthesis imaging. This is the latest in breast screening technology.
“Being a Pink Ribbon facility is a great way to show patients that we continue to provide them with highest quality of care, and by offering the 3-D tomosynthesis, we give them that,” Stephanie Jennings, chief mammographer at The Women’s Center, said. “The Women’s Center offers the latest 3-D tomosynthesis model and technology so women know that they are receiving excellent breast care when they come to us.”
The Women’s Center is also among an elite group of institutions nationwide that’s received a three-year/full accreditation designated by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. This achievement makes Cookeville Regional’s breast program the only accredited breast center in the Upper Cumberland.
