Breast Health

The main goal of routine breast care is to detect breast cancer at its earliest stages, although other benign conditions, such as fibrocystic breasts or cysts, are often discovered. According to the National Cancer Institute, when breast cancer is found early and is still localized (restricted to the site of origin, without evidence of spread), it is one of the most treatable cancers in the United States, with a relative 5-year survival rate that is quite good. Our measures include types of surgeries performed, relative 5-year survival rates and patient satisfaction.

How To Read This Report:
An explanation of the scores and how the cell coloring relates to them.

Desired Performance

This indicates if a high or low score is best for this metric. In some case the desired performance will be neutral. In this case the desired performance is neither high or low and a color rating is not assigned to the statistic of that metric..
